  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Filled-out, medium-sized frame.

Mechanics: Over-the-top, off-balanced delivery. Leans prominently to the third base side. High leg kick, stiff front knee. Not repeatable. Results in poor command and control.

Fastball: Four-seam fastball sits 93-96 mph. Uses the pitch about 40% of the time. Also regularly mixes in a 92-94 mph two-seamer with heavy sink and a low-90s cutter with slight cutting action. Extreme groundball pitcher.

Curveball: Primary breaking pitch is now an 80-84 mph curveball. Previously threw a slider, but phased the pitch out in 2018.
  Changeup: 84-86 mph. Inconsistent pitch.

Career Notes: Drafted by Milwaukee in 2010, but soon thereafter recieved a Type I diabetes diagnosis, after whcih time he decided to go to college at San Diego. rafted by Oaklain in 2013, then selected by the White sox in the 2016 Rule 5 Draft. Has remained a starter throughout his career.

Summation: Has solid stuff but inconistent mechanics have resulted in poor command and control. Profiles as emergecy rotation depth unless he is able to refine his delivery.
