Scouting Scratch (10.4.16)
Notes from the Field (3.22.17)  

Physical Description: Tall, projectable frame. Very skinny at present with a high waist and long limbs. Needs to add strength and physically mature, but has room to grow.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a low-effort delivery. Mechanics work. Quick arm. Deliberate back, then whips arm forward.

Fastball: 89-92 mph. Tops out at 93 mph. Heavy pitch with late sink. Will show cut at lower velocities. In the early stages of developing command and control. Could add more velocity as he fills out his frame. Potential plus offering in the future.

Curveball: 76-77 mph. 11-to-5 break and two-plane movement. When he snaps it off, pitch will show depth.

Changeup: 82-83 mph. Inconsistent pitch. Deceptive arm speed. Has shown in flashes the ability to turn it over with late fade away from left-handed hitters.

Career Notes: Impressed at 2016 Fall Instructional League. Fit description of unnamed player whom Red Sox declined to include in trade talks during 2016-17 offseason.

Summation: Long way to go developmentally, but an intriguing arm. Has the profile of a potential starting pitcher, as he already shows the beginnings of a three-pitch mix and has a projectable frame. Physical development will be key given how skinny he is at present. High-risk prospect with a low floor, but has some upside.
