  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Extremely lanky frame. Room to fill out.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, starting on the first base side of the rubber. Significant north-south extension. Inverted W delivery. Poor control.

Fastball: 88-90 mph sinker. Generates ground balls and misses. Over-reliant on the pitch.

Changeup: 80-81 mph. Inconsistent pitch, but has shown flashes of major league potential. Downward action.

Slider: 79-81 mph show-me slider. Used less than 5% of the time.
  Career Notes: Transferred from Eastern Michigan to Drury. Was among the Nationals' top ten prospects in 2018. Missed 3 months in 2019 with an oblique strain. Picked in the Rule 5 Draft by Miami in December 2019, saw limited major league time with the Marlins in 2020, but was returned to Washington later that season.

Summation: Mid minors depth.

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