Player Notes
The Univerity of Oregon product was a mid-season Pacific Coast League All-Star for the Aces and is ranked by Baseball America as the Diamondbacks' No. 17 prospect coming into 2017 thanks in large part to a fastball in the upper 90s and a plus slider. He's also added a curveball and changeup to his arsenal. After a rough 2015, he made a concerted and successful effort to make improvements on and off the mound and it has shown. He boasts a career .218 BAA over four-plus seasons, and in 2016, when he combined for 30 saves between Visalia (High A), Mobile (Double-A) and Reno he tied for second in saves in the minors, off the lead by just one save as he limited batters to a combined .169 against in 55 1/3 innings, fanning 79 while walking just 24 and allowing 31 hits.
