Scouting Scratch (10.16.2018)

Physical Description: Average frame with no remaining projection.

Mechanics: Max-effort delivery. Throws from a high arm slot with hard recoil and head whack. Delivery could lead to injury issues long-term.

Fastball: 92-95 mph. Straight and lacks plane, but is effective when he keeps it down in the zone. Potential plus offering.

Slider: 82-84 mph. With show sharp tilt. Potential average offering.

Curveball: 79-81 mph. Vertical shape, has more depth than slider.

Career Notes: Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League

Summation: Projects as a solid four-a reliever with the chance to reach the big leagues in an up and down role. Fastball-slider combination show major league quality, but fastball command and delivery limit upside.
