  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, athletic pitcher's frame. Some remaining projection. Long limbs. Room to add strength.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Easy arm action. Hides the ball well. Delivery works. Repeats it well, especially considering he did not commit fully to baseball until college.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Pitch shows natural sink and has a good spin rate. Should add velocity as he physically matures.

Curveball: 77-79 mph. Power breaking ball with a plus spin rate. Pitch has 1-to-7 break and has flashed depth and tight rotation when he finishes it.

Changeup: 80-83 mph. Third pitch. Will show some feel at times. Does a good job of not telegraphing the pitch. Pitch improved in college.
  Career Notes: Father, Bill, was a pitcher in the Royals organization from 1987-1990. Was highly regarded coming out of high school and was selected in the 23rd round of the 2017 MLB Draft by the Phillies. Successful quarterback in high school and did not commit fully to baseball until he was in college. First professional experience came in the 2020 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Athletic left-hander who will show a three-pitch mix, but needs to develop physically. Has more upside remaining than a typical college draftee. Has the type of athleticism you look for in a pitcher. Has shown a general feel for pitching and a repeatable delivery. Fastball command needs improvement and he needs to continue to refine his secondaries.

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