Released (May 2020)

Physical Description: Sturdy frame. Filled-out, no remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot. Has moved from the extreme first base side to the middle of the rubber. Jerky delivery. Slings the ball, has some deception. Tough arm slot for left-handed hitters creating uncomfortable at-bats, at least in the low minors.

Fastball: 89-90 mph. Shows arm-side run and sink.

Breaking ball: 75-79 mph. Varying shape, so could be two pitches. At lower velocity, pitch shows short, vertical drop and looks more like a curveball. At higher velocities, shape is more horizontal.

Changeup: 83-84 mph. Will show drop at times.

Career Notes: Pitched for one season at St. Petersburg (Junior) College before transferring to Florida International for two seasons.

Summation: Projects as a minor league depth lefty. Lacks a put away pitch. Behind the developmental curve after signing at age 23. Has had great success in Low A while old for the level, but needs to take developmental steps forward to succeed against more advanced hitters who will have seen pitchers with his arm angle before.
