“Erik is and extremely hard worker who pitches in the range of 88-92 mph with outstanding breaking pitches," said Cal pitching coach Mike Neu. "He is a little bit undersized at 6-0, which kept him under the radar, but his toughness and mix of pitches more than makes up for his height. He projects as a bullpen arm early because of his slider, but will definitely have the opportunity to develop into a weekend starter."
