  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic, sturdy frame. Filled out with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Medium leg kick. Short arm action with some effort in the back. Does a good job repeating his mechanics, but release point can get inconsistent. Hides the ball well.

Fastball: 92-94 mph. Tops out at 95. Fastball velocity reportedly 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. Average potential.

Changeup: 85-87 mph. Pitch shows late drop. Will cut it at times also. Average potential.

Slider: 83-85 mph. 10-to-4 shape with two-plane movement. Sometimes struggles to land in the zone, but will flash depth and bat-missing ability. Average potential.
  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, improving 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. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021.

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