A Glorius Story: From batting records to draft... (3.23.16)
Scouting Scratch: Cosart, Glorius, Fernandez... (7.12.16)

Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with a solid pitcher's frame that has some projection remaining. 

Over-the-top arm slot. Live arm. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Some effort in delivery; slight rock back and head jerk. Arm action is on the long side behind with a slight arm hook.

92-94 mph. Tops out in the high-90s. Will show late life and cut when he finishes the pitch, and has shown bat-missing ability. Command and control need refinement; will overthrow at times, leaving the pitch up and out of the zone. Potential plus-to-better offering with refinement.

82-84 mph. Shows late drop and splitter-like action on occasion, but is inconsistent and will float to the plate at times.

78-80 mph. Shows 11-to-5 break and vertical depth when he snaps it off.

82-84 mph. Shows short, horizontal break. Looks like a cutter at times.

Career Notes:
Didnít start pitching until college. Garnered interest from the Twins, Royals, Tigers, Giants, and Padres before signing with the Red Sox as an undrafted free agent.

Potential mid-rotation starter with significant improvement of secondaries and command and control, although he is being developed in the bullpen as of the start of the 2016 season. Lot of development required even though he was signed out of college. Fastball could play up in relief role. Has late-inning potential and could move much more quickly than if he had remained a starter.
