free agent (July 2017)
Notes from the Field (4.23.18)
Scouting Scratch (10.18.2018)
Physical Description: Athletic
right-hander with some remaining projection. Looks listed 6-foot-1, 180
Mechanics: Throws from a high
three-quarters arm slot. Long arm action with a lot of moving parts.
Recoils when falling off the mound.
90-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Will come out 92-94 mph, but velocity drops
off quickly in game and by the third inning is mostly 90-91 mph. Pitch
show arm side run. Command and control has a very long way to go. Well
below-average at present. Struggles to locate, more of a thrower at this
point. Needs to be more consistent holding velocity.
Slider: 84-86 mph. Short, shape varies. Some more vertical,
others more horizontal. Lacks feel, slows delivery. Potential
Splitter: 86-88 mph. Late
drop at times. Potential average offering.
Notes: Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional
Summation: Signed late as a 20 year old.
Raw at present, but will show arm strength and quick arm. Delivery lacks
fluidity and secondary pitches need a lot of work. Due to late start,
looks destined for a bullpen role long-term. Command and control need to
make significant progress to get out of the low minors.
