Positions (alt): RP
College: Canisius College
Durable LHP with professional and overseas experience (Can-Am League 2018, Germany 2019). A 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.
