  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Large frame. Soft body. Thick lower half with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot from the first base side. Begins facing the third base dugout, then steps toward first to start delivery. No wind-up, medium leg kick. Quiet delivery before he comes forward. Long arm swing behind. Arm-heavy delivery.

Fastball: 90-93 mph. Tops out at 94. Primarily throws a sinker that shows hard, boring action and elicits plenty of groundballs when it’s on. Command is below-average and needs to improve. Potential above-average pitch with refinement.

Slider: 84-88 mph. Hard breaking ball with inconsistent shape, some vertical with others more sweepy. At its best, shows sharp, 11-to-5 break. Lacks feel and consistency. Potential below-average offering.
  Changeup: 87-89 mph. Firm pitch that looks like a fastball he took something off. Lacks movement and feel. Work in progress. Potential well below-average offering.

Career Notes: Participated in 2020 Fall Instructional League. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021.

Summation: Potential minor league depth reliever. Sinker could get outs, but lacks an effective secondary offering. Raw and more of a thrower with limited feel. Has a ways to go developmentally and has to drastically improve his command and secondary offerings in order to push towards the high-minors.
