2013: A fixture in the rotation, he’ll be counted on to go deep in games and give his team a chance to win every time out…improved strength will enable him to pound the strike zone more consistently…staying down with his pitches will make him even tougher to hit…very competitive, he doesn’t back down from hitters, using three pitches effectively to get them out.
2012: Made a credible transition from the bullpen to a place in the rotation…tied for third on the staff with 10 starts, five wins, 65 innings pitched, and 43 strikeouts…won three of his first five starts…the first of those came on 2/4/12 when he blanked Arizona on three hits in a seven-inning complete game…a week later, he improved to 2-0 when he struck out a season-best seven batters vs. Patten…posted his final win of the year vs. Azusa Pacific on 4/2/12, going four innings and giving up just two hits.
2011: First-year hurler became the club’s closer, notching five saves in 18 appearances…struck out 29 in 30 innings of work…whiffed four batters twice, the second coming vs. California Baptist on 3/26/11 over three innings when he picked up his second win of the season…struck out the side vs. Pt. Loma Nazarene on 4/9/11 to pick up his fifth and final save of the year.
Hart HS: Played one year for the Indians and Coach Jim Ozella…hit .279 with a .397 slugging percentage and drove in 11 runs.
