May 22, 2018 — Visalia Rawhide (High-A, California League)
Tall, long, and lean; aged out beyond physical projection but could conceivably add some thickness through lower half still; good athleticism and sturdy build from football background, but lean and should fill out a bit more with age. Former quarterback at USF, turned to baseball full-time; decent run as a bullpen arm so far through the low minors for the Arizona Diamondbacks … High three-quarters release with good downhill plane on pitches thanks to arm action and height; life on all his stuff with sharp arm-side run back to fastball at times. Turns his back to hitter at balance; some deception here to RHH, though LHH will likely pick him up early on arm swing behind back. Nevertheless, looks like an uncomfortable at-bat for RHH late in games; attacks and doesn’t let up … Fastball 92-95 in my May look; paired it with an 85-90 slider, 79-82 curve, and 81-84 change; mostly went to fastball/slider combo, especially against RHH. Throws his slider very hard, nearly a cutter but with some tilt and depth; love it for a power look, tough to pick up spin and tunnels well with fastball until late, sharp break at the plate; maybe not enough break for a true wipeout pitch, but it’ll get off barrels … Old for the Cal League and probably ought to spend the second half of 2018 in Double-A to stay on track, but Tommy Eveld has late-inning potential; ceiling more in line with 7th/8th inning set-up work than closing, but he’s got the look and arsenal for a chance at high-leverage short relief with the Arizona Diamondbacks one day soon.
