Scouting Report: Tall right-hander with a mature frame. No remaining projection. Relief-only delivery with considerable effort. Fastball sits in the mid-90s and touches 98 mph. Fastball has shown the ability to miss bats. Command and control need work. Primary secondary is a slider. Tore his UCL in high school but rehabbed the injury and did not have surgery. Signed with the Diamondbacks in 2016 out of the independent Frontier League. Was cut in training camp and went back to the Frontier League briefly before signing with the Yankees in May 2017 at age 25. Potential organizational reliever.
