  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, lean frame with long levers. Needs to add strength, but has the frame to support added weight. Good athleticism.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. High leg left. Coils before coming forward. Arm swing behind; hides the ball. Uses height to get good extension. Has arm speed. Some effort in delivery.

Fastball: 90-93 mph. Tops out at 95. Could add velocity as he physically matures. Command and control need work.

Curveball: 75-78 mph. Long, 11-to-5 break.

Changeup: 80-83 mph. Some drop. Good separation from fastball. Slows arm some.
  Career Notes: Young for his class, drafted as a 17-year-old. Committed to Oregon.

Summation: Projectable right-hander with a wide gap between what he is and what he could be. Already shows a three-pitch mix. Very projectable, but needs to physically mature.

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