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
