Fastball: Fastball sits ad 92-93 mph and tops out at 95 mph. Armside run. Plus command.

  Career Notes: Horizon League Pitcher of the Year as a senior for the Milwaukee Panthers in 2016. Late round pick as a senior sign for the Yankees that year. Not invited to the Alternate Training Site in 2020. Boston took a flyer on him in the Minor League Phase of the 2021 Rule 5 Draft.

Summation: High minors depth arm. Possibly an emergency starter due to his command and four pitch mix.
