Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 79-81 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late/sharp break.
