  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Sturdy frame. Looks bigger than his listed height and weight and has gotten stronger since he signed.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Rhythmic delivery. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. High leg kick. Short arm action back with a stab, but hides the ball well. Quick arm action coming forward. Gets above-average extension.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 94 mph. Velocity has ticked up a little each year. Pitch gets on hitters quickly due to his high extension. Potential average offering with the chance to improve as he continues to physically mature.

Curveball: 74-78 mph. Advanced feel. Vertical shape with depth. Can really snap it off and has shown the ability to either bury it down and out of the zone or land it in the zone.

Slider: 80-82 mph. Short, horizontal break.

  Changeup: 80-82 mph. Deceptive arm speed. Some late fade.

Career Notes: Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that was canceled due to Hurricane Ian.

Summation: Wide range of potential outcomes, but has several traits teams look for in young pitchers and has gained velocity and improved each year. Intriguing arm who already shows a four-pitch mix. Could see his velocity tick up even more and break out in 2024 if he shows consistency with his command and secondary pitches. Fastball and curveball give him a solid baseline to miss bats at the lower levels, but needs to continue to develop the rest of his arsenal.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in regular season game action.
