Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 5' 11" Weight: 175
Mature frame and body, on the smaller side but doesn't seem to affect him, older arm. Pitches from the third-base side of the rubber, straight-on, compact/stab arm action with average arm speed to a high 3/4 slot. Hides ball behind body, hitters don't get to see it until it is out of hand, adding deception.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 92-94 95 Plays up from velocity given deception and ride, above-average life. Hitters struggle to stay on top of it, mostly fly ball contact, fills up the zone. Mainly works north/south, plus offering.
Curveball 60 83-84 84 Out pitch. 11/5-12/6 shape, hard power pitch with plus depth, more a chase pitch then one he can consistently drop for strikes, late bite that fooled hitters and got some ugly swings, plus offering.

See as a 7th inning reliever, 24 y/o RHP, smaller D1 school draftee who has put up stupid numbers. Plus FB that hitters struggle to pick up paired with an above-average curveball, both can get outs at big league level. Strong interest, would acquire.
