Notes from the Field (3.29.17)
Scouting Scratch (08.16.17)
Scouting Report Update (3.31.20)

Physical Description: Average athlete with a skinny frame and some remaining projection. Lower half has filled out some since signing. Looks taller than his listed 5-foot-11.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Short arm action. Effort in delivery. Significant recoil after pitch. Generates some deception as he turns his back to the hitter before coming to the plate.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Command and control have improved significantly since move to the bullpen, but still will come and go from outing-to-outing. Relies heavily on the pitch and will mix in secondaries.

Changeup: 79-82 mph. Inconsistent, but still his best secondary offering. Shows late drop with deceptive arm speed when he has it working well. Potential fringe-average offering.

Curveball: 75-79 mph. Lacks feel for the pitch. Doesn’t consistently snap the pitch off. Tends to roll to the plate with 1-to-7 shape. Work in progress. Below-average potential.

Summation: Move to the bullpen has significantly improved his outlook, but still profiles as a mid- to upper-minors relief arm. Needs to continue improving command/control. Stuff needs to take a step forward before he can profile as a potential major league relief arm.
