Body: 5’11”, 160 pounds. Athletic, lanky, projectable frame.
DeliveryStarts with quick, side rocker step into a chest high leg kick. Quick, twitchy delivery and gets good extension over his front leg.

Arm Action: RH. Throws downhill out of a high three-quarter arm slot.
FB: T83 mph, 81-83 mph. Displayed some arm-side run.
CB: 69-71 mph. Thrown out of nearly the same release point as FB, tight 12/6 action.
CH: 75-77 mph. Good, deceptive action of the hand.
