He is pitching this summer for the Marucci Elite 18-and-under travel team and will work to gain as much weight as possible to his 6-5, 170-pound frame.
This is a win-win situation for the Reds. They get to watch him over the summer. Maybe his stock rises to where if the draft was held a few months later he'd be a shoo-in for going in the top 2 rounds. The Reds offer him 4th round money. He takes it, the Reds have a potential steal. If not, oh well, he's a 50th round pick and those are generally wasted picks anyway.
