NOTES FROM THE FIELD, INSTRUCTS:
- Medium frame, country strong with thick/broad features.
- Slow-tempo semi-windup, minimal effort but doesn’t extend well. Off-line arm-circle, slight recoil after H3/4 slot.
- FB 92-95 (93); Limited command, frequently elevated. Lively riding life helps pitch up in the zone.
- CB 76-77; Shapely pitch, tight spin with consistent two-plane depth. Chance to be big league breaking ball.
- CH 83-87; Crude third, working to develop it. Occasional bottoming action at 83-84, straightens when thrown harder.
- Inconsistent control, loses the zone for stretches. Around the plate more with FB than off-speed.
SUMMARY: Middle relief tools, strong-bodied righty with chance for two average pitches in FB/CB. Mostly raw tools at this point, needs to refine as a pitcher and sharpen control/command to establish himself as a legitimate prospect at higher levels.
