  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, lanky left-handed starter. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics:
Long levers and front-side deception. Clean, balanced mchanics.Confident and composed on the mound. 

Fastball:
Four-seam fastball sits 87-90 mph with natural cut. Can reach back and get his fastball up to 92 mph. Around the plate, pitches to contact. Was a groundball pitcher early in his career, but groundball rate has dropped significantly and flyball rate almost doubled. 

Cutter: Relatively new pitch. Sits 85-86 mph with solid horizontal movemnt. Peppers it in to keep hitters off balance. Induces weak contact.

Curveball:
76-79 mph. Mixes in it well.

  Changeup: Flashes of a major league average pitch. Consistent arm slot and release point with his fastball. Will induce some swings and misses. At 81-82 mph, could use some more separation from his standard velocity fastball.

Career Notes:
Had Tommy John Surgery during his junior year, leading to him spending five seasons at Indiana. Low-bonus senior sign for the Red Sox in the 2016 draft. Has climbed the ladder of the Boston organization relatively quickly.

Summation:
Tough on left-handed hitters. Excelllent pitchability, really works his four pitch mix well. Solid command and control. Will likely struggle to get major league hitters out with his high-80s fastball. Plays all of his secondaries off of his four-seamer. Profiles as an emergency depth starter that spends most of his career at Triple-A. Wouldn't be surprising if he had a run if given an opportunity at the majors.
