Scouting Report: Slight of frame right-hander. Fastball sits in the mid-90s, topping out at 99 mph. He reaches that velocity with clean mechanics and a repeatable delivery, generating plus arm speed with loose arm action. He should be able hold velocity deeper into games as he fills out some. Shows great pitchability and feel for his age and features two good offspeed pitches. His curveball is a potential plus pitch, with tight spin and sharp bite at 71-73 mph. He also throws a changeup with some sink and shows good feel for the pitch. Doubled the record for a signing bonus given to a Venezuelan, set by Francisco Rodriguez in 1998. Links
