Physical Description: Tall, large frame. Filled out with no remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot starting on the third base side of the rubber. Arm heavy delivery with effort. Long arm action with a stab behind. Will vary delivery time to the plate.

Fastball: 93-95 mph. Has reportedly touched 98 mph. Pitch shows natural cut. Below-average command and control profile. Potential plus pitch.

Slider: 83-85 mph. Short, horizontal shape. Pitch shows bite. Inconsistent, but will flash above-average potential.

Changeup: Hasnít thrown pitch in outings scouted in 2019.

Career Notes: Quit baseball during high school, then played at JuCo, D-II, and D-III in college. Was not drafted, then went on to spend some time in the Texas and Kansas City organizations, as well as the Indy leagues. Was a Non-Roster Invitee to big league camp with the Royals in 2018. Released by the organization in April 2019 and signed by Boston soon thereafter.

Summation: Solid high minors depth arm due to inconsistent stuff and command and control. At his best will show the stuff of a major league middle reliever, but lack of consistency decreases chances of reaching his potential.
