Focus Area
Fastball: Has been clocked as high as 94 miles per hour, but generally sits around 90.
Curve: Spike curve, average. It’s a slurve-type pitch. It’s inconsistent, but has the chance to be better. It’s not really an out pitch at this point.
Changeup: Average pitch, nothing special.
Control: He currently lacks command.
Poise:Has good mound presence and is a gamer.
Physical Description: At 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, is strong, athletic and has room to fill out.
Medical Update: A shoulder injury caused him to miss a chunk of his senior season.
Strengths: Athleticism, moxie, fastball.
Weaknesses: Command.
Summary: Scouts began focusing on the Phoenix-area two-way star more as a pitcher, thanks to a fastball that has been clocked at 94 mph and a strong-average curve and changeup. He lacks command and was plagued by an injured shoulder his senior season, but his athleticism and raw arm strength are enough to project him as at least a setup man in the future.
