  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with remaining projection. On the skinny side at present.

Mechanics: Loose, quick arm. Throws from mid three-quarters arm slot and lands soft and closed on his front side. Could do a better job incorporating his lower half in his delivery.

Fastball: 93-95 mph. Tops out at 96 mph. Below-average command at present. Tends to crossfire fastball. Pitch shows tail down in the zone and some ride when up in the zone. Velocity has already increased from 91-93 mph during the Fall Instructional League in 2018. Potential plus offering.

Slider: 82-85 mph. Primary secondary pitch. Will show sharp break and tilt on occasion. Advanced feel for pitch. Will throw often and in any count. Potential above-average pitch.

Changeup: 84-86 mph. Work in progress. Shows some feel and fade, but inconsistent. Tends to slow arm and pitch is on the firm side.
  Career Notes: July 2 signing out of the Domincan at age 17. Was fairly dominant during debut season with the DSL in 2018, earning a late season promotion to the GCL. Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League. Excelled in spring training in 2019, earning a promotion to Low-A for his age 19-20 season.

Summation: Has the early makings of a three-pitch mix that makes him a potential number four or five starter. Very young with a lot of development remaining and a wide variation of potential outcomes. Fastball, slider combination could profile in a bullpen role if changeup and command don't develop. Not the most imposing physically, but still has projection and has the type of athleticism you look for.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in regular season game action.
