  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Left-hander with a filled-out, medium-sized frame.

Mechanics: Clean over-the-top delivery. Holds hands high, medium leg kick. Can fall to third base side at times. 

Fastball: Primarily relines on a 91-93 mph four-seam fastball which generates some swing and miss. Has previously mixed in a sinker on occasion that generates fly balls. Below average control and command.

Slider: 83-85 mph two-plane slider generates groundballs.
  Changeup: 80-82 mph changeup with cutting action. Misses bats.

Career Notes: Spent entire career with Texas organization before January 2020 trade. Spent time at the Alternate Site in 2020 but did not burn an option year.

Summation: 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.
