  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, average size frame with some remaining projection, especially in the lower half.

Mechanics: Effortful over-the-top delivery. Inverted W mechanics. High leg kick. Below-average command and control.

Fastball: Mid-90s four-seam fastball with cutter movement. Gets swings-and-misses. Gets lefties out.
 
Slider: High spin rate with slurvy action.

Curveball: Reportedly has a work-in-progress curveball with hard, late drop.

  Career Notes: Twin brother Brandon was drafted by Colorado in 2018. Had Tommy John Surgery in 2015. Spent three seasons at Albiene Christian before transferring to Central Oklahoma. Low bonus senior sign with Kansas City in 2018. After the cancelled 2020 season, he missed 2021 due to injury. Boston took a flyer on him in the Minor League Phase of the 2021 Rule 5 Draft.

Summation: Likely a Rule 5 lottery ticket, but has major league bullpen potential if everything falls right. Has major league size and velocity. Impressive strikeout rate and a great track record against lefties. Needs to hone command and control.

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