Physical Description
Tall, long-limbed frame has added good muscle in last year. Strong, lean build that’s ideal for pitching and has remaining projection.
Mechanical Notes
Clean, simple SWU w/ on-line finish and minimal effort throughout. Soft plunge to start arm-circle w/ slight wrist hook visible on backside; free-and-easy 3/4 slot projects large. Frame and operation for future plus delivery.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 FB could be above-avg pitch w/ continued gains in velo and command. Size and angle here to play it up even if he’s not overpowering.

Fastball Velocity 50 55 92 90-94 Avg present velo, settles in at 91-92 but holds throughout starts. Body type to add a tick more as he finishes filling out.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 50 Natural extension and loose, quick stroke create lively late finish through zone that hints more velo on the come. Occasional run w/ angle when down.

Slider
Slider 40 50 82 80-84 Sweepy slurve tilt, shows to both RHH/LHH. Consistent action that tunnels well off FB; broke off a few w/ nice depth and found more feel as outing progressed.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 45 86 84-88 Only threw a few, shows to RHH. Uncomfortable feel, straight and runs into FB. Have seen CH better in the past; smooth, loose arm-stroke can develop it more.

Cutter
Cutter 40 45 87 86-88 New wrinkle to arsenal that could bail out lack of third pitch if CH doesn’t develop. Short gloveside action w/ fair overall break, projects as usable show-me back through lineups.

Control
Control 40 50 Leans heavily on FB first time through; SL is go-to secondary, has feel to land it; will need more third pitch to face LHH in rotation role. Slow from stretch, still learning to control running game. Poised mound presence w/ bloodlines and professional demeanor.

Overall Summary
Risk/reward type that requires projection and will take time. Ceiling of #4 SP w/ continued development and improved third pitch. Just starting to grow into his body and scratch the surface—trending in the right direction, has made gains across the board since 2018 looks.
