Average frame, minimal physical projection.
Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of
the rubber. Short arm action behind. Does a good job hiding the ball
behind his body during his delivery. Delivery makes it tough for lefties
to pick the ball up out of his hand.
89-91 mph. Tops out at 93 mph. Pitch shows natural cut and jumps on
hitters. Command and control need significant improvement. Walks way too
many hitters, but has shown the ability to miss bats with the pitch, at
least in the low minors.
75-80 mph. Looks like a curveball at lower velocities and more like a
slider when thrown harder. Unclear if two different pitches or one with a
wide velocity band.
Undrafted out of Western Carolina as a junior, signed for full “slot” for
an undrafted free agent after a strong Cape Cod League season. Missed
extended time in 2018 with an undisclosed injury. Did not make 2019 debut
with Greenville until April 30, then was demoted back to extended spring
training after four appearances. Was much better in return to Greenville
after an eight-game stint in Lowell, posting a 2.16 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 26
strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings.
as an organizational arm. Ceiling of an emergency, up-and-down
left-hander. Left-handedness gives him a chance, but will have to prove it
at each level and is behind the development curve.
