  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Average build, limited remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the third base side of the rubber. Jerky delivery with effort. Medium leg kick and long arm action.

Fastball: 91-94 mph. Life up in the zone and shows arm-side run.

Slider: 81-83 mph. 11-to-5 shape with depth when he gets over it.
  Career Notes: Spent four years at Arkansas prior to transferring to TCU. Missed the entire 2019 season after having Tommy John surgery. Was selected by Tampa Bay in the 17th round of the 2017 Draft, but elected to attend Arkansas rather than sign. Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.

Summation: Fastball/slider depth relief type. Will see if there is untapped potential that he can get to in pro ball.

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

Red Sox select Caleb Bolden with seventh-round pick (7.18.22)
