Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with an average build. No remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the third-base side, but slides to the middle in his wind-up. Starts with his hands by his waist and brings them down and up before coming forward. Rhythmic delivery that he repeats well. Short arm action with a stab behind. Hides the ball well. Repeats delivery well.

Fastball: 90-93 mph. Tops out at 94. Average command and control profile. Throws a lot of strikes and has already shown the ability to locate. Velocity tails off as he gets deeper into outings. Will struggle to miss bats as he faces more advanced hitters. Potential fringe-average offering.

Changeup: 79-82 mph. Shows late drop. Deceptive arm speed. Throws primarily against left-handed hitters. Potential average offering.

Slider: 81-83 mph. 10-to-4 shape with depth at its best. Solid feel and confidence in the pitch. Throws often against both right- and left-handed hitters. Can roll to the plate on occasion when he does not snap it off. Potential fringe-average offering.

Curveball: 74-76 mph. Vertical, 12-to-6 shape. Will throw first pitch when trying to steal a strike. Below-average potential.

Career Notes: Before signing as an undrafted free agent, had committed to returning to Alabama in 2021 and using his extra year of eligibility from the canceled 2020 season, then planned to enlist in the U.S. Navy. Apparently missed 2016 season for unknown reasons.

Summation: Projects as a minor league swingman. Capable of pitching in short relief or multi-inning roles. Ceiling of an organizational arm. Good pitchability and feel. Throws strikes, works quick. Type of pitcher every organization needs.
