1st inning- growing up- what did sports mean to you and when did you realize that baseball was a sports you were pretty good at?

I’ve been involved with sports my whole life and always loved them. But baseball was the one sport I loved going to practice. I felt like I was good at it when I first started playing. Baseball just came natural to me.

2nd inning- If you could talk to a group of 12 year old baseball players what would you tell them?

First I would tell them to work hard on their grades. Having good grades just opens so many more doors in baseball. Second I would tell them to just have fun. Don’t be so hard on yourself when you don’t play like you wanted to. Just be thankful that you get to play such a great sport.

3rd inning- Talk to us about the moment you found out you were drafted by the Royals?

I was actually out to eat when it happened and I got a phone call from my dad telling me that the royals drafted me. It didn’t really hit me until I was sitting down with my scout signing contracts.

4th inning-U grew up in the Inland Empire city of Corona, CA….I know there is a lot to do there ( I played my college ball in the Inland Empire) but it is also a area that produces a lot of athletes…who are some of the kids you grew up playing against or with that are now sharing the same dream of a professional baseball player as you?

Yea the IE always produces good ball players. I went to high school with Matt Hobgood (1st round Orioles) and Wes Hatton (4th round Angels). I also played against Gerrit Cole in CIF playoffs my senior year in high school.

5th inning- What has clicked for you this season and are you doing anything different than before?

I’ve just have had a great coaching staff to set me in the right direction. Whenever I had a question about pitching I would always turn to my pitching coach Jerry Nyman. I feel like I wouldn’t be the same pitcher I would be today without his guidance.

6th inning- what is your pre game workout, your between game workout, and your off season workout? (long toss, throwing program, etc)

Before games I try to stay relaxed and rested. Between starts I go swimming to help strengthen my arm and get it ready for my next outing. And I don’t long toss too much I just try to stay healthy in the off season

7th inning- what is in your arsenal…where do your pitches sit and what do they touch velocity wise?

I have my fastball, change up, and slider. On good days I can get my fastball around 89-93 but normally I sit 87-91. My change up is around 73. And slider around 82.

8th inning- what is your mind set every time you take the mound?

When I pitch I try to always have fun. But strike one is always what I’m thinking when a new batter steps into the box.

9th inning- if a scout watched you over 5 games you pitched what would his scouting report look like?

it would show that I can keep my composure in tight situations. I know the mental part of the game and even if I have a game when my stuff isn’t on, I can grind out innings.

Grew up on the streets of Overland Park...played my high school ball at Shawnee Mission North before playing college ball in Riverside, CA. I graduated from an original Big 8 school and love this great city. My favorite player as a kid was Frank Tanana and I thought U.L Washington was a cool MOFO
