Physical Description
Tall; Lean; Athletic.
Mechanical Notes
Unorthodox delivery; lifts leg as if he's starting towards home; puts it back down and pivots into more of a stretch delivery before another high leg lift and delivery to the plate. 3/4 arm slot with clean arm action and average arm speed. Delivery creates some deception, and he varies times to home adding difficulty for hitters timing. 1.27-to-1.40 seconds towards home from stretch.

Overall Summary
Ideal pitchers' frame with clean, unorthodox delivery with deception; three-pitch mix. Changeup is a present plus offering with bat-missing ability. Overall average command and control profile across the board. Low-risk; Major league-ready starting pitcher with potential to stick in the back end of rotation.
