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

Mechanics: Throws from a low arm slot. Long arm action, but gets good deception. Has had trouble repeating his delivery.

Fastball: 93-96 mph. Tops out at 97 mph. Sat 91-94 mph as a starter, but his stuff ticked up when he moved the bullpen. Has shown the ability to miss bats with the pitch. Command and control need a lot of work. Potential above-average offering.

Slider: 85-88 mph. Hard breaker with some tilt. Has flashed above-average potential.

Changeup: Clear third pitch that he hasn't incorporated that often. Will need to develop pitch to stick as a starter.
  Career Notes: Started in 2021 in the rotation, but was moved to the bullpen after he struggled. Was selected to the Big-12 All-Freshman Team in 2019 and was a top high school prospect in Oklahoma in 2018.

Summation: Will be developed as a starter, but likely to end up in the bullpen long-term. Evolving pitch mix, but has shown the ability to turn a lineup over with the pitch mix he now has. Development could take time, but intriguing prospect.

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