  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic right-hander who has filled out considerably over the last few years. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high-three-quarters arm slot. Long arm action with lots of moving parts. Slight trunk twist before coming forward. Effort in delivery. Has had trouble repeating delivery over longer outings.

Fastball: 93-97 mph. Tops out at 98 mph. Below-average command. Velocity has increased in pro ball and now routinely sits mid-90s. Potential plus-to-better offering.

Changeup: Best secondary pitch. Has improved since he got into pro ball and provides a nice compliment to his fastball. Still needs refinement and improved consistency. Potential average offering.
  Slider: Lags behind changeup. Average potential at best.

Career Notes: Velocity spiked during the Conference tournament of his draft year and stock rose, leading the Yankees to draft him in the 4th round. Named First Team All-Conference in his sophomore and junior years at North Florida.

Summation: Potential middle-reliever. Ceiling of a back-end starter if he can continue to develop his secondary pitches and command takes a step forward.

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