Description: Average frame,
filled out. No remaining projection.
Throws from an over-the-top arm slot starting on the first base
side of the rubber. Does not use a wind-up. Compact delivery
with solid extension. Medium leg kick and short arm loop behind.
Hides the ball. Works quickly. Effort in delivery.
Fastball: 92-94 mph. Tops out at 95 mph.
Velocity has ticked up in pro ball. Pitch shows sink and is used
to generate weak contact rather than generate whiffs. Average
command-and-control profile. Potential average offering.
Slider: 83-85 mph. Short, 10-to-4 shape. Lacks
depth. Does not consistently snap off. Potential fringe-average
Changeup: 86-88 mph. Lacks
feel. On the firm side. Potential below-average offering.
74-76 mph. More vertical shape than
slider. Short break. Able to land for strikes and front door to
right-handed hitters. Did not throw in outing scouted in 2023.
Potential below-average offering.
Battled injuries in the summer of 2017, when he had surgery, and
apparently in the spring of 2018. Was often used in a long/bulk
relief role in Salem in 2021.
Potential organizational depth arm. Lacks a carrying pitch, but
fastball/slider combination works to get out minor league
hitters. Minimal ceiling, but throws strikes and is the type of
depth arm every organization needs to fill out a minor league
