  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Average height, stocky frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Effort in delivery. Long arm action with a loop behind. Quick arm forward. Head whack. Front side tends to come through early while his arm will drag behind.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Pitch has life and movement.

Changeup: 83-85 mph. Late dive down and in on right-handed hitters. Throws with deceptive arm speed. Solid feel. Best pitch right now.

Curveball: 79-80 mph.12-to-6 shape. Will show tight rotation and depth.

  Career Notes: Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that was canceled due to Hurricane Ian. Missed the beginning of the 2023 FCL season due to a personal issue.

Summation: Young right-hander with an intriguing three-pitch mix. Shows feel for secondaries and fastball already shows good characteristics. On the raw side, with a wide range between what he is now and what he could be, but has upside.

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