  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Large-framed reliever. Fully filled-out.

Mechanics: High-effort low 3/4 delivery. High leg kick, slinging action, prominent recoil. Subpar control with high strikeout numbers.

Fastball: 95-98 mph. Relies heavily on the pitch, but rings up strikeouts with it when it's on. Not afraid to throw it in and out of the zone.

Slider: 88-90 mph wipeout slider with above-average potential.
  Career Notes: Raw for his age. Missed time in 2013 with a slipped disc in his neck.  Missed 2014 and 2015 seasons following Tommy John Surgery. Missed time in 2016 following labrum surgery. Pitched at the Alternate Training Site in 2020. Re-signed with the organization prior to becoming a minor league free agent in 2020. Began 2021 at the Alternate Training Site.

Summation: Emeregency depth arm. Still raw despite his age, given missed time due to injury. Still has major league development potential.

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