  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, athletic pitcher's frame. Still may have some room to grow despite already being listed at 6-5, 220. Long arms, thinner in the lower half.

Mechanics: Easy delievery from a three-quarter arm slot. Well-balanced, not much unnecessary movement. Repeatable. Mediocre control.

Fastball: Four-seam fastball sits 90-92 mph and tops out at 94 mph. Glove side run. Throws the pitch about 60% of the time. Looks faster due to his extension.

Slider: 83-85 mph. Slurvy action. Fringe-average pitch.

Curveball: 71-75 mph. 1-to-6 movement. Average pitch. More potential than his slider.
  Changeup: Above-average 81-82 mph changeup.

Career Notes: Was suspended 8 games in high school for covering for a teammate. Missed time in 2016 with a shoulder strain. Missed a big portion of 2019 with an elbow injury. Claimed off waivers by the Mets in November 2019. Claimed off waivers by Boston in July 2020, then cleared waivers in August and was outrighted.

Summation: PNeeds to be able to stay healthy and limit the walks. Profiles as emergency rotation depth with a back-of-the-rotation ceiling.
