Fastball sat 91-93 mph and topped 95 with heavy life through the zone. Flashed his signature 12-6 curveball with tight depth and immediate break out of the hand.

His command of a true three-pitch mix stands out with any arm in any class. The competitive nature this time around was immediate, as he competed from the first pitch and kept that same intensity.
