Undrafted free agent (June 2020)
School: Harris County (GA)
Description: Athletic right-hander with an average build. No
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
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.
79-82 mph. Shows late drop. Deceptive arm speed. Throws primarily against
left-handed hitters. Potential average offering.
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
Curveball: 74-76 mph.
Vertical, 12-to-6 shape. Will throw first pitch when trying to steal a
strike. Below-average potential.
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.
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
