  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic pitcher's frame. Has some projection left and should add strength as he matures.

Mechanics: Over the top delivery. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Medium leg kick. Effortful. Turns his head to the first base side upon release. Significant recoil.

Fastball: 92-95 mph with solid movement. Ability to add some velocity. Hasn't shown the ability to hold velo late into games. Below-average control.

Curveball: Low 80s with high spin. 12-to-6 movement with late drop.

Changeup: Firm low-to-mid 80s changeup.
  Career Notes: Was not recruited much out of high school. Spent two seasons at Riverside Community College before transferring to Long Beach State.

Summation: Organizational relief profile. Will need to improve control at higher velocity.

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