Personal

Durable LHP with professional and overseas experience (Can AM League 2018, Germany 2019). Four year starter at Canisius College (NCAA Div 1) where I was named a 2018 Division 1 3rd team All-American (Collegiate Baseball), 2018 MAAC Pitcher of the year and 2018 MAAC Tournament MVP. I then spent a brief stint in independent ball with the Quebec Capitales of the Can Am League.

I spent Summer 2019 playing for the Dohren Wild Famers in the German Bundesliga 1. where I went 6-2 with a 3.31 era with 112ks and only 19 walks in 73.1 innings during the regular season helping the Wild Farmers earn the last playoff spot. I then lost a no decision against the #1 seeded Mainz Athletics in the first round of playoffs after throwing 7 scoreless with 9ks and exited with the lead.

I am a finesse pitcher with great command and a plus change-up. Fastball typically works in the mid to upper 80s (offseason bullpen readings 87-89) a change-up that sits between 73-76 and a 72-74 breaking ball. My best pitch is my change-up, I have the ability to throw it in any count with just as good or better command than my fastball.

J.P. was a great addition to our club in Dohren. I felt very lucky to have found him and signed him to come play in Dohren. On the field, the numbers spoke for themselves. His strikeout numbers and ability to keep hitters off balanced was absolutely tremendous with one of the best changeups I’ve ever seen. It seemed like no one was ever able to pick up on it even after seeing him multiple times. His competitiveness and fire was something I loved from the guy on the mound. He was going out there to win and would do whatever he could to make it happen. Off the field, you couldn’t ask for a better team guy. He was always with the guys after practice and after games. He helped with the kids during the week and always did what was asked from him by the club. I would recommend J.P. for anywhere. Personally, I think he should be signed into some pro ball in America. He has that drive and the ability to be successful anywhere.
