Born: 10/15/1999 (Age: 19)
Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 6' 3" Weight: 175
Great pitcher's body; long legs and torso, currently lean but with enough space in the frame for further velo projection. Clean delivery; leg kick almost to letters, not much rotation, 3/4 release that gets good plane. Athletic enough for good command projection.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 93-95 96 Good plane creates life and "rising" action, is especially effective up in and above the zone as a swing-and-miss pitch that also generates weak contact. Has movement down in the zone as well. Could add even more velocity as he fills out. Command isn't precise at present but athletic delivery bodes improvement.
Curveball 55 79-81 82 Generally slurvy but at times more like 10-4 or 11-5. Has late bite and he can throw it for strikes consistently but is currently more of an early count offering than a put-away pitch. Has the most potential of any of his secondaries but at the moment is inconsistent.
Cutter 50 86-87 88 Interesting slider-like offering that can be used to both neutralize lefties and give RHH another look. Short, late movement that gets an impressive number of swings and misses.
Changeup 45 83-84 85 Uses sparingly enough that its his fourth pitch, but does flash fade and dive at times.

Really intriguing package here. Has a nascent starter's repertoire with four viable pitches at a young age and has the frame and athleticism for velo and command projection. Fastball is quality enough to be plus even at current speed, and though curve is a (promising) work in progress he has a variety of off-speed pitches that can mess with hitters' eye level and timing.
