  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Extra-large pitcher's frame. No remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber and does not use a wind-up. Drop-and-drive motion. Effort in delivery. Shorter arm action. Quick arm.

Fastball: 95-97 mph. Reportedly tops out at 100 mph.

Slider: Primary secondary pitch. Has shown bat-missing ability.

Changeup: Third pitch that he does not incorporate often.
  Career Notes: Was committed to Toledo out of high school, but did not qualify academically so he spent two years at Sinclair Community College prior to transferring to Miami (Ohio). Worked out for the Red Sox in June prior to being selected. Named a Northwoods League All-Star in 2021 after throwing 12 2/3 innings, allowing only four hits while striking out 29.

Summation: Relief-only profile, but has an intriguing fastball/slider combination. Premium velocity and huge frame make him one to follow as he gets going in pro ball.

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