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

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Easy arm action. Hides the ball well.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Pitch shows natural sink and has a good spin rate.

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 at the moment. Will show some feel at times. Does a good job of not telegraphing the pitch. Has 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 didn’t commit fully to baseball until he was in college.

Summation: Athletic left-hander who will show a three-pitch mix, but is on the raw side for a college pitcher. Is still learning to pitch, has more upside than a typical college draftee. Fastball command needs improvement and he needs to continue to refine his secondaries. Has the type of athleticism you look for in a pitcher that should help him repeat his delivery.

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