  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Average frame, minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Drop and drive delivery with considerable effort. Long arm action behind with a point and stab.

Fastball: Sits mid-90s and has topped out at 99 mph. Velocity tends to decrease as he works deeper into games. Throws a lot of competitive pitches. Pitch shows average movement, but bat-missing ability up in the zone. Command and control need refinement.

Slider: Mid-80s. Good shape. Long, sweepy slider with considerable horizontal movement. Struggles to land the pitch in the zone and relies on hitters to expand the zone on it. Below-average control.
  Changeup: 85-87 mph. Rarely used in college, but shows intriguing horizontal movement.

Career Notes: 2022 Southern Conference Pitcher of the Year.

Summation: Pure relief type with intriguing pitch characteristics. Threw in a long-relief role in college and could be developed in the multi-inning relief role. Secondary pitches need work, especially his changeup which he rarely used in college.

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