  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Tall, skinny right-handed pitcher. Projectable frame, needs to add strength.

Mechanics: 3/4 delivery. Short leg kick, long thrust to home. Falls off to first base side slightly.

Fastball: Fastball works 90-95 mph and sits around 93 mph. Velocity has already increased since he joined the organization. Sat 89-91 in 2018. Fastball command is a work in progress, as is overall contol. Potential plus fastball.

Breaking Ball: Throws a breaking ball that looks like a curveball at present, but also will show one that looks like a slider. If he is throwing both will likely settle on one of them as he develops more feel and matures. Breaking balls work 76-81 mph. On occasional will show flashes of a good breaking ball.
  Changeup: Also throws a changeup at 87-89 mph.

Career Notes: Signed with Boston just prior to his 17th birthday. Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019.

Summation: One to keep an eye on for the future. Has already made significant strides since he signed, but is a projectable young arm who can already touch the mid-90s. Wide gap between what he is now and what he could be. Has shown the early makings of a three-pitch mix and with his frame has the potential to develop into an interesting back end starting pitching prospect.

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

State of the System: Mid-Minors Pitchers (4.3.20)
