  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Average frame. Thick lower half. Remaining projection in his upper body.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot from the third base side. No wind-up, medium leg kick. Quiet delivery for the most part before he comes forward. Long arm swing behind. Arm-heavy delivery.

Fastball: 90-94 mph. Tops out at 95. Primarily throws a sinker that shows hard, boring action. Should elicit plenty of groundballs. Command is well below-average and needs to improve considerably. Potential above-average pitch with refinement.

Slider: 84-88 mph. Hard breaking ball with short 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.

Summation: Potential minor league depth reliever. Sinker could get guys out, but lacks an effective secondary offering. Raw and more of a thrower right now 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.

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