Athletic, average build with minimal remaining projection.
Mechanics: Throws from a high
three-quarters arm slot, starting on the first base side of the
rubber. Delivery has some effort and deception. Arm comes
through late and high and is off-putting to hitters. Quick arm.
Fastball: 91-94 mph. Has reportedly
topped out at 97 mph. Fastball shows cut and has a high spin
Breaking Ball: Throws both a
curveball and a slider in the low-80s. Even though they are in
the same velocity band, pitches show two distinct shapes. Slider
shows more potential at this point.
Changeup: 84-86 mph. Work in progress, clear
Notes: Transferred to Long Beach State from Riverside
CC. Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program
that was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.
Summation: Athletic right-hander
with four pitches. Needs to improve curveball and changeup, but
fastball and slider give him a chance in the bullpen. Will
likely be developed as a starter to begin his career.
Note: This page will be
updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team
has seen the player in person.
