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.
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.
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
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.
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.
