  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average frame with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot from the third base side of the rubber. Substantial effort in delivery. Quick arm, short arm action. Head whack and falls off hard to the first base side.

Fastball: 95-97 mph. Topps out at 99 mph. Pitch has a high spin rate and has shown bat-missing ability. Has thrown strikes throughout his college career, but command needs refinement.

Slider: 80-83 mph. Sharp 10-to-4 break with a high spin rate. Can get on the side of it, and does not always land it for strikes. When at its best, will flash plus potential.
  Career Notes: Missed the 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Only threw 31 1/3 career innings as injuries kept cropping up in 2020 and 2021. Missed time in 2021 with back and shoulder issues.

Summation: High-risk profile, but has the potential to develop into a major league reliever. Will show two major league-quality pitches, but health track record is concerning, as is lack of innings during college career.

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