Notes from the Field (4.17.18)
Scouting Scratch (7.19.18)
Scouting Report Update 6.16.2020

PPhysical Description: Strong pitcher’s frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics:
Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Medium leg kick, some effort in delivery. More comfortable throwing from the windup than from the stretch.

Fastball:
92-94 mph. Tops out at 96 mph. Velocity has ticked up during his time in the minors; sat just 89-91 during spring training in 2018. Tends to overthrow at times, with his command and control suffering as a result.

Splitter:
81-83 mph. When pitch is on, will show late dive with the bottom really falling out. Flashes average potential.

Slider:
83-85 mph. Shows tilt and horizontal break, but can get on the loose side at times.

Curveball:
78-80 mph. Long, vertical break.

Changeup:
Sat 81-84 mph, but tended to telegraph the pitch, slowing his arm down. Appears to have scrapped the pitch.

Career Notes:
After a strong spring training in 2018, earned assignment to Greenville out of camp, but struggled through his first five appearances and returned to extended spring training before later heading to Lowell. Struggled again in the first half of 2019, striking out 58 hitters but allowing a .291/.378/.439 line in 50 innings through June 16. But after a week off, had great success in his final 53 innings, striking out 66 and allowing just a .191/.262/.284 line in 53 innings.

Summation:
Potential organizational swingman type with a chance for more if improvements in the second half of 2019 continue. Has a ways to go developmentally, including the refinement of his arsenal and improved control, but will show flashes of potential. The physical tools are there to develop into an intriguing arm, but need to take a few big steps forward. Needs to develop a pitch to get left-handed hitters out, as he struggled against them in the past.
