Scouting Report

Signed for $100,000 as 43rd round draft pick in 2008; most teams didn’t know he was draft eligible coming out of Navy — a steal for the Orioles. Fastball sits in the 91-93 mph range touching 95 mph with sink. Plus slider sits in 82-85 mph range and is absolute wipe-out pitch at times. Needs to develop a changeup and pitch down in the zone more often if he wants to remain a starter. Slider is a real weapon that would play very well out of the bullpen. Possible setup man.
