  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Undersized with minimal remaining projection. Athletic, moves well on the mound.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Medium leg kick. Some effort in delivery. Jerky arm action with a hook behind. Deception in delivery, hides the ball well behind his body.

Fastball: 92-94 mph. Tops out at 96 mph. Pitch has many characteristics teams look for including carry and vertical break. Pitch shows life and bat-missing potential. Command and control need work. Can be wild at times and walks too many hitters. Potential plus pitch.

Changeup: 81-83 mph. Good separation from fastball. Pitch shows drop and fade.

Slider: 82-84 mph. Sweepy breaking ball with horizontal shape. Does not throw very often.
  Career Notes: Attended three different colleges during his three years of college baseball. Started at Southeast Louisiana before transferring to Division III Jones College and eventually ending up at Southern Miss. Participated in the 2021 Cape Cod League.

Summation: Potential left-handed reliever. Fastball and changeup are intriguing, but improving his command and control and developing consistency with his secondary pitches are key for him to reach his potential. Stuff grades out well analytically and was very appealing for model-driven teams.

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