Career Stats
Quick Scouting Report Update: Young lefty had a very nice debut in 2019 as a 19-year old in the Sally League. similar to fellow prospect Alex Wells, he won’t overwhelm batters with velocity but uses a change of speed and good command to get batters out.

Still some upside here so his ceiling could be low. He was a guy who would have pitched in Frederick as 20-year old. He’s definitely a guy who could take a big leap forward in celling and most likely with a jump in velocity.
