Scouting Report Update (6.1.2020)

Physical Description: Undersized, average frame. No remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws side-arm from the first base side. Long arm action, then slings the ball. Effort in delivery. Delivery is deceptive to right-handed hitters.

Fastball: 89-91 mph. Pitch shows sink and run. Does a good job keeping the ball down in the zone. Throws strikes. Designed to generate weak contact. Pitch will struggle to miss bats against more advanced hitters. Potential fringe-average offering.

Slider: 76-78 mph. Slurvy, long breaking ball. Pitch tends to roll to the plate. Shape varies at times. Typically has long, horizontal movement. Sweepy and tough for righties to pick up, but runs right into the barrel of left-handed hitters. Potential fringe-average pitch.

Changeup: Typically 81-83 mph. Some drop. Throws sparingly, but incorporated the pitch more in 2019. Has thrown pitch a bit harder at 85-86, but at that speed, pitch lacks separation from fastball and is less effective.

Career Notes: Played for two years at Chemeketa Community College before transferring to NAIA Corban University for his final two seasons.

Summation: Low minors relief depth arm. Ceiling of becoming a solid organizational player if he throws strikes and keeps the ball down consistently. Limited ceiling, but type of player every organization needs to fill out their minor league bullpens.
