First and foremost, I’m a fierce competitor.  I love pitching out of the bullpen because I’m one of those guys that can throw 3-5 times a week depending and stay healthy and effective.  I always feel like I’m the best bet for the biggest jam of the game. I take pride in my mound presence and attitude. I also consider myself to be a huge team guy.  

On the pitching side of things, I like to work quickly and I have the ability to locate all three of my pitches (4FB, SL, CH) in and out of the zone.  I work off of the farthest first base side of the rubber and have a low 3/4 arm slot, and my positioning on the mound adds to my effectiveness against lefties.  When it comes to lefties, I like to work off of my slider as it is a wipeout breaking ball. I normally attack lefties with sliders and fastballs. When it comes to righties, I attack them with fastballs inside, but again, I command fastballs all across the plate.  My changeup is normally very effective to righties, as is the slider. I think that my innings that I have posted showcase that well.

Overall I consider myself to be a huge asset, as I’m a late-game left-handed pitcher who can handle pressure. My baseball IQ is through the roof.  I can also field my position extremely well and stop the running game. I can hit, although I didn’t have any college at-bats.  I can also play the outfield well because I’m quick and take great reads and routes. I’m just looking for the opportunity to continue playing at a high level while experiencing new places, and I truly think overseas baseball is right up my alley.

 

Abilities summary: 4 Seam Fastball with tail, 85-88
Slider (sharp, horizontal movement), 71-75
Circle Change, 70-74

Concordia University Irvine, Head Coach

During my time with Sam at Concordia Irvine he provided us with versatility in the bullpen as a long reliever and short reliever. His stuff plays versus both right handed and left handed hitters. He is athletic from the left side that can handle the inside game and slow the run game down as well. He worked extremely hard during his time on the field or in the weight room to better himself as a baseball player. I had zero complaints of Sam on the field and he was a good teammate that lead on and off the field with our younger team.
