    At 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds, Judice is high-waisted and incredibly projectable. In his fourth season with Louisiana-Monroe in 2023, Judice posted a 3.74 ERA in 53 innings, mostly out of the bullpen, with a 29.3% strikeout rate and a 6.7% walk rate. Judice throws two pitches, a fastball and slider, and can run his fastball into the mid 90s with little effort. His hard slider is a plus offspeed pitch with sharp break. He has loose, whippy arm action and attacks from a low, three-quarter slot. Given his size, it’s a tough at-bat for opposing hitters. It’s easy to envision an uptick in velocity with the 6-foot-8 righthander given the weight he is likely to put on and once he gets his lower half more engaged in his delivery.
