Scouting Report: Venezuelan right-hander spent two full seasons in the DSL before receiving a stateside assignment. Presently lanky, with a 3/4 arm slot. Fastball operates 88-91 mph. Shows glove-side run. Can reach back for more and top out at 92-93 mph. Tends to speed up delivery at tail end when throwing his fastball. Not an overly loose thrower, as he possesses some stiffness and effort in his delivery. 70-73 mph curveball shows loopy break, but can create depth when staying on top of the pitch. Needs more consistency snapping it off to improve crispness and depth. Potential to evolve into a tighter offering. Also mixes in 79-82 mph straight changeup. Improving with arm speed, but pitch can float. Potential to continue to physically develop, which will help stuff. Throws strikes. Command and ability to spot arsenal will be tested at next level.
