  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, large-framed right-hander with a filled-out lower half. Weight had been under-listed at 190 pounds for several years until recently, when weight was updated to 260 pounds. No additional projection in his frame.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot. Gets good power from his legs. Mostly smooth mechanics, although there can be whipping action in his follow-through when he reaches back. No unnecessary movement.

Fastball: Four-seam sits high-90s and tops out at 100 mph. Two-seamer sits mid-90s with some run and heavy sink. Consistently below-average command and control.

Changeup: High 80s. Mixes in as a show-me pitch. Pitch has some sinking action. Below-average.
  Career Notes: Signed by the Mets at the age of 18. Used as a starter early on in his career, had Tommy John surgery in May 2015 and returned as a reliever. Signed with the Reds in November 2016; received an invitation to MLB Spring Training with Cincinnati in 2018. Received an invitation to MLB Spring Training with the Red Sox in 2020.

Summation: Profiles as an emergency bullpen arm due to his limited arsenal and command and control issues. Could catch lightning in a bottle and work himself into a high-leverage reliever with the refinement of control and a secondary pitch, but that seems unlikely at this stage. Has yet to make MLB debut in his late 20s.
