  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, sturdy frame. Maxed-out physically.

Mechanics: Throws from a low-three-quarters arm slot. Significant effort in his delivery. Low leg kick, max recoil. Gets a lot of torque from his windup.

Fastball: 88-90 mph fastball. Has topped out at 95 mph in the past. Very inconsistent command and control. Heavy fastball that does not miss bats. but generates groundballs.

Slider: Low-80s slider. Sweepy breaking ball that shows considerable bat-missing ability.

Changeup: 82-85 mph. Late tumble. Pitch has intriguing characteristics.
  Career Notes: Was released by Cleveland in June 2022 and signed with the White Sox for the remainder of the season. Signed with Boston as a minor league free agent prior to the 2023 season.

Summation: Potential mid-minors depth reliever. Stuff is intriguing and has shown the ability to miss bats, but needs to take a massive step forward with his consistency and command and control. Still on the younger side despite having pitched professionally for seven seasons.
