  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average frame with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics:
Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Medium leg kick with short arm action going back and quick coming forward. Simple mechanics. Apparently simplified leg kick during 2021 season, previously using a very high leg kick in which his lower leg was parallel to the ground at shoulder height.

Fastball:
93-95 mph. Lacks life, shows sink when down in the zone. Not a bat-missing pitch, designed to generate weak contact. Potential average offering.

Slider:
84-86 mph. Horizontal shape usually, but will show some depth on occasion. Has feel and confidence in pitch. Will throw often and sometimes pitch backwards off it. Potential average offering.
  Changeup: 85-87 mph. On the firm side with late drop. Below-average potential.

Career Notes:
Had Tommy John surgery in college. Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021.

Summation: Potential minor league depth arm. Lacks a carrying pitch. Arsenal is on the average side and will struggle to miss bats against more advanced hitters. If he throws enough strikes, could stick around as an organizational arm.
