Scouting Report

Righty with a 91-95 mph fastball with some slight, late life. Works with two breaking balls — a curve and a slider — both of which are above-average. The slider is thrown in the 84-87 mph range, while the curveball is thrown in the 76-79 mph range and has some very sharp 11-5 break before it reaches the strike zone. Changeup has some late fade away from lefties and works well when thrown to the outside of the plate. Has the stuff to work up in the zone, but doesn’t command his pitches well enough to do it consistently. Clean, with a repeatable delivery. Has done a better job with foot placement and stride length and his arm slots have always been good, but not great. Mechanics do not point to any future issues.
