Physical Description: Medium
frame with some projection left in the upper half.
Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, almost sidearm. Gets
good extension towards the plate. Clean mechanics.
Fastball: Throws a 91-93 mph four-seamer, a
91-92 mph sinker, and a 86-88 mph cutter. Relies on the
four-seamer 40-50% of the time. Four-seamer has heavy sink and
some tail and induces a lot of groundballs.
Slider: 81-83 mph. Two-plane movement. Induces
flyballs. Primary secondary pitch.
Changeup: 81-83 mph splitter with some drop.
Notes: Attended 4 schools in 4 years, including DII Cal
State Monteray Bay, JuCo San Mateo, Tennessee, and DII
Embry-Riddle. Released out of camp in 2016, went on to pitch in
the indy leagues, only to sign with the Dodgers that august then
to be released again after that season. Went back to the indy
leagues in 2017-2018. Signed with the Mets in June 2018,
finished the year in Low-A then became a minor league free
agent. Signed with Seattle in 2019, pitched well in Double-A
before getting a major league cup of coffee. Struggled in
limited major league time in 2020. Received a non-roster
invitation to Spring Training in 2021, suffering an arm injury
in his first appearance. Opened 2021 on the injured list at the
Alternate Training Site.
Summation: Emergency up-and-down depth. A
team that dedicates time to refining his pitch mix and finding
the right role for him might find a major league contributor.
Never been in one orgnaization for more than two years.
