  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with an average build.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Repeatable mechanics.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95. Fastball velocity constantly increased during college; did not touch 90 when he first matriculated at USC. Above-average spin rate. Has shown the ability to pitch at the top of the strike zone and miss bats. Has the fastball traits analytically-inclined teams look for.

Secondary pitches: Features both a changeup and slider. Both had above-average whiff rates in the MLB Draft League.
  Career Notes: Did not receive any scholarship offers coming out of high school. Enrolled at Southern California and joined the club baseball team. Tried out for the varsity team during his sophomore season and practiced with the team but was cut before the season and elected to transfer to continue pursuing his baseball career. Worked with ex-major leaguer Joe Beimel and refined his mechanics, allowing him to increase his velocity into the low 90s. Transferred to Northwestern for the 2020 season. Participated in the MLB Draft League following the conclusion of his 2021 college season.

Summation: Fresh arm with limited pitching experience at the collegiate level, but posses intriguing traits. Fastball has the traits teams look for. Excellent work ethic, ultra-competitive. Gets the most out of what he has.
