  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average pitcher's frame. Filled out; minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the third base side of the rubber. Quick, medium-height leg kick. Long arm swing behind. Some effort in delivery. Repeats delivery well.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Tops out at 94 mph. Fastball velocity ticked up slightly early in 2021, but returned back to the 90-92 mph range as the season went on. Plus control. Potential for above-average command. Potential fringe-average offering.

Split-changeup: 77-79 mph. Throws with deceptive arm speed. Good separation from fastball. Pitch shows late dive. Potential above-average offering.

Slider: 77-81 mph. Slurvy breaking ball. Potential average offering.
  Career Notes: Acquired from the Phillies as the player-to-be-named-later in exchange for CJ Chatham. Last start for Phillies system was (perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not) against Portland.

Summation: Potential emergency depth starter. Ceiling of a sixth starter/long-man. High floor/low ceiling. Lack of fastball velocity limits ceiling. Has solid feel for pitching and an advanced command profile. Will throw strikes, but lacks put-away stuff.

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