  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average-framed right-hander with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a low-three-quarters arm slot. Compact delivery with effort. Low leg kick. Stays balanced. Drop and drive with elbows high in delivery. Delivery is off-putting, especially to right-handed hitters.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Tops out at 94 mph. Heavy pitch with late sink. Tends to throw down in the zone, looking for groundballs. Sinking fastball that he comes across and tries to keep down in the zone. Very inconsistent control. Has really struggled to throw strikes in 2022. Potential fringe-average pitch.

Slider: 78-81 mph. Horizontal, sweeping breaking ball. Lacks depth. Throws often, but is inconsistent and will sometimes roll to the plate. Potential average offering.
  Changeup: 81-83 mph. Has good separation from his fastball. Pitch shows late fade. Potential fringe-average offering.

Career Notes: Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021.

Summation: Potential organizational depth arm capable of working multiple innings or giving a spot start. Ceiling of solid organizational arm. Capable of working short or longer outings, and even starting for stretches when necessary, providing useful versatility. Throws strikes and projects for an average fastball/changeup combination. Keeps the ball down and generates a lot of ground balls. Delivery is off-putting, especially to right-handed hitters.
