Physical Description: Small, undersized frame. Minimal projection even though he is on the thin side. Could stand to add upper body strength.

Mechanics: Throws from an over the top arm slot, starting on the third base side of the rubber. Doesn’t use a wind up. Jerky delivery. High leg kick and slight trunk twist in with a short arm action behind. Some deception as he keeps his arm hidden behind his body.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Velocity tends to fall off as he works deeper into games down to the 89-91 mph range in the fourth and fifth innings of his starts. Pitch shows sink and cut on occasion when he drops his arm slot. Does a good job keeping the ball down and generates a lot of a weak contact. Potential average pitch.

Curveball: 79-82 mph. Slurvy, eleven-to-five break. Pitch shows tight rotation and depth when he snaps it off. Has feel and confidence in offering. Potential plus pitch.

Changeup: 85-87 mph. Work in progress. Slows arm, lacks feel. Has rarely used in outings scouted.

Career Notes: Signed out of Venezuela early in the 2014 international signing period. Spent three seasons in the complex leagues, primarily as a reliever in 2016 and 2017. Lowell's Opening Day starter in 2018.

Summation: Projects as an emergency up and down reliever. Ceiling of a middle reliever. Frame and lack of a third pitch point to a bullpen projection long-term, though will have success in the low minors as a starter due to fastball/curveball combination. Progress has been slow and could be accelerated in a relief role.
