Scouting Report: Projectable left-hander with great athleticism. Thin frame with lots of room to fill out. Efficient, low-effort delivery. Repeats delivery well for his age. Not a lot of miles on his arm. Fastball sits areound 90-93 mph and tops out around 95 mph. Some arm-side run. Needs to improve command of the pitch. Velcotiy fades later into outings. Potential to add velocity as he physically matures. Low-80s changeup has plus potential but is incosistent and needs refinement. Maintains arm speed well and flashes arm-side fade. Also throws a 74-78 mph curveball that showed significant improvement during his senior season. Didn't start throwing curveball with regularity until junior year in high school.  Will need to work on mound presnece and posie as he climbs the ladder. May progress slowly given his overall rawness. Also a talented hitter and outfielder who was among the top two-way players in the 2013 draft. Had been committed to the University of Texas prior to signing with Boston.
