Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with remaining
projection. On the skinny side at present.
Loose, quick arm. Throws from mid three-quarters arm slot and
lands soft and closed on his front side. Could do a better job
incorporating his lower half in his delivery.
93-95 mph. Tops out at 96 mph. Below-average command at present.
Tends to crossfire fastball. Pitch shows tail down in the zone
and some ride when up in the zone. Velocity has already
increased from 91-93 mph during the Fall Instructional League in
2018. Potential plus offering.
Slider: 82-85 mph. Primary
secondary pitch. Will show sharp break and tilt on occasion.
Advanced feel for pitch. Will throw often and in any count.
Potential above-average pitch.
Changeup: 84-86 mph. Work
in progress. Shows some feel and fade, but inconsistent. Tends
to slow arm and pitch is on the firm side.
Notes: July 2 signing out of the Domincan at age 17.
Was fairly dominant during debut season with the DSL in 2018,
earning a late season promotion to the GCL. Participated in the
2018 Fall Instructional League. Excelled in spring training in
2019, earning a promotion to Low-A for his age 19-20 season.
Summation: Has the early makings of a
three-pitch mix that makes him a potential number four or five
starter. Very young with a lot of development remaining and a
wide variation of potential outcomes. Fastball, slider
combination could profile in a bullpen role if changeup and
command don't develop. Not the most imposing physically, but
still has projection and has the type of athleticism you look
