  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Loose, athletic right-hander with room to add strength. Has already grown since signing and should continue to grow.

Mechanics: Very loose delivery with an easy arm action.

Fastball: 88-90. Tops out in the low-90s. Needs to add velocity. Advanced control for someone his age.

Curveball: 77-79 mph. Good feel for the pitch. Has shown the ability to throw for strikes.

Changeup: 83-86 mph. On the firmer side, but has shown advanced ability to command the pitch for someone his age.

Slider: Reportedly also has a slider which he has shown some feel for.
  Career Notes: Signed with the Royals for $147,500 when he turned 16 on July 6 back in the 2018/19 international signing window. Played primarily shortstop growing up, but converted to pitching shortly before signing.

Summation: Very intriguing arm with advanced feel for pitching for someone his age. Already shows a four pitch mix with solid feel for his secondaries. Needs to add velocity, but has the athleticism teams look for in a pitcher.

Note: This page will be updated with a scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
