Bio

A power pitcher that uses his strong lower half to generate a low-to-mid-90s fastball … works on a good downhill plane and will get a lot of swing-and-misses in the strike zone … the continued development of his secondary pitches will allow him to excel as either a starting pitcher or potentially into a potential bullpen arm.
