Scouting Report:

Tournament of Stars Summer 2013: from Don Olsen

Picked up a bit of weight and looks about 200-205 pounds, maybe a little more projection left.  He is showing less shoulder tilt and better command, but still leaks up hand side as a result of rushing himself.  The FB was 88-91(93) that was showing natural tail from his slot. The pitch was showing more backspin; saw the ability to change eye levels, showing some swing/miss in the offering.  His CH was 81-82 mph and flashed better depth and fade, diving down and willingness to work it around, kept it down, solid projectable pitch.   The CV, 71-73 mph, flashed some above average with solid rotation, shape, and willingness to work both sides of the plate with it.  Rounding out a solid 3 pitch mix and showing day one ability, if the progression continues.

National High School Invitational Spring 2013:  from Don Olsen

Ideal frame, sloped shoulders, solid development that could put on another 10-15 pounds.  He throws out a bit of the Cliff Lee type mold.  Fastball was 87-90 (91) mph.  He showed good 3/4 slot, natural tailing action on 2S.  CH, 76-78 mph, with fade, flashes above average ability and could reach plus.  The CV has decent shape considering the slot, nice rotation that could give him an above average offering down the road.  His pitchability is off the charts, with the willingness to work off change, throws the curve and change in any situation.
