The 6-1, 185-pounder has a good, moving fastball and a good curve ball but his the high selection was a surprise for many who had not rated that highly in pre-draft conversation. He signed for $390,000.
As a high schooler, he is not as polished as Adkins but has a good upside and his performance in his first professional season did not hurt him in the least.
He worked in 10 games, six of them starts, and although he didn't get a decision, recorded a solid 3.00 earned run average over 21 innings, allowing 18 hits and striking out 18 while walking only six.
