Draft Spotlight


  • Large, extra-strong frame w/ workhorse look; nearly fully mature, but already has a big league build. 
  • Controlled semi-windup that generates velo w/o much effort; arm stabs in the back and wraps off-line leading into powerful 3/4 slot; clean, on-line finish down the mound; advanced ability to repeat delivery. 
  • FB 94-98 (95-96); Outstanding velocity w/ frame and delivery to hold through outings and keep for strikes; consistent downhill angle w/ run down in the zone; showed glimpses of true command low+armside; blow-by pitch that projects as a no-doubt plus weapon. 
  • SL 80-83; True SL w/ present power and consistent action; used CH more this look, but has shown SL as primary off-speed in the past; flashed sharpness and depth, definite pro-ready pitch. 
  • CH 84-86; Dominated LHHs w/ CH this outing, throwing it early and often; above-avg separation w/ good sell and consistent turnover; bottom really falls out on best ones, showed flashes of future  above-avg offering. 
  • Very mature mound presence, carries himself like a pro already; threw consistent strikes w/ three-pitch mix, stayed ahead of hitters, worked  quickly; advanced pitchability, showed feel to mix off-speed stuff and set up hitters w/ different speeds.

SUMMARY: Outstanding mix of size, stuff, and pitchability; has the ingredients of a potential frontline starter; very developed across the board and closer to a finished product, but has big league physicality and stuff right now; one of the top arms in next year’s draft class.
