Scouting Report: Left-hander with a filled-out, medium-sized frame. Clean over-the-top delivery. Holds hands high, medium leg kick. Can fall to third base side at times.  Primarily relines on a 91-93 mph four-seam fastball which generates some swing and miss. Secondary pitches include an 81-82 mph changeup with cutting action and an 83-85 mph two-plane slider. Has mixed in a sinker on occasion that generates fly balls. Below average control and command. Spent entire career with Texas organization before January 2020 trade. Profiles as an up-and-down bullpen arm with the ceiling of a middle reliever with improvements to his pitch mix.

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