  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average, athletic frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Doesn’t use a wind-up. Medium-high leg kick. Controlled, repeatable delivery.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Above-average command and control profile. Around the plate, throws quality strikes. Really knows how to control the zone and gets a surprising number of whiffs with the pitch. Velocity has improved in pro ball. Potential average offering.

Changeup: 80-82 mph. Deceptive, throws with the same arm speed as his fastball and has good velocity separation. Pitch shows late, downward action. Has shown the ability to pull a string and have the pitch fall off the table. True major league-quality out pitch. Potential plus offering.

Slider: 83-85 mph. Has shown bat-missing ability. Potential average offering.
  Career Notes: Missed nearly four months of the 2019 season with an oblique injury. Used that time to tinker with his changeup, which greatly improved. Impressed at the 2019 Arizona Fall League. Although he was not a non-roster invitee to Phillies spring training in 2020, was invited to Summer Camp when play resumed, and pitched at the Alternate Training Sites for both the Phillies and Red Sox.

Summation: Potential back-end starter. Ceiling of a mid-rotation starter. Stuff has improved in professional ball and will now show a plus pitch and two other average ones. Strong pitchability. Throws a lot of strikes. Able to generate whiffs with all his pitches. Consistent command and control will be key to his success at the major league level because his stuff is not overpowering.

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