Physical Description
Lean, lanky frame; high waist, long legs. Athletic with some room to add strength.
Mechanical Notes
Deliberate, compact delivery with medium arm circle. Hook and wrap in back with some crossfire action. Has some trouble repeating, but stays tall and works downhill when right. Soft front side makes it hard for him to get to glove side with any consistency.

Fastball
Fastball 40 40 88-90 91 Straight with some gradual cut to glove side. Below-average life, but showed some hop when down and to the arm side; deception in arm action plays up life slightly. Really flattens out up in the zone; very gradual, limited life to glove side.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 77-80 81 Straight changeup with some bottom to the arm side. Inconsistent action and feel, tends to slow arm down at times; goes through stretches where arm sells it. Can see it getting more consistent.

Overall Summary
Tall, lanky LHRP whose deceptive arm action plays up his below-average stuff. Ability to get some angle, and sees the fastball velo play up when he is able to utilize the angle and drive downhill. Changeup is his best pitch, getting occasional hard bottom; arm will sell it, but very inconsistent. Lacks feel for breaking ball; likes to use a cutter to glove side, but has to be perfect with it. Lacks feel for mechanics and having trouble repeating the delivery. Extreme fly ball guy. Think he can still get a little stronger and can see a small up-tick in velo if he gets more consistent with his mechanics. Got rattled with runners on and does not have much confidence with the fastball. Well-below average command in the zone, and lacks the weapons to stick in the rotation, but deceptive delivery could eventually give him value in a situational bullpen role.
