  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Athletic, sturdy frame. Some remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the third base side of the rubber. Medium-high leg kick with slight trunk twist. Long arm action with loop behind. Quick arm. Effort in delivery.

Fastball: Sits mid-90s and has reportedly hit 100 mph. Pitch shows carry and bat-missing ability. Command and control need refinement, but pitch shows plus potential.

Breaking Ball: 77-81 mph. Pitch shows two-plane movement and long, sweepy break. Inconsistent and struggled to land for strikes at times. Will flash plus potential.

Changeup: 84-86 mph. Rarely threw in college, but will likely look to develop pitch in pro ball as he transitions to starting.
  Career Notes: Played in the Cape Cod League in 2022. Had nerve relocation surgery in the summer between the 2021 and 2022 seasons. Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.

Summation: Will transition to the starting rotation in pro ball, but could always fall back to the bullpen, where his fastball will definitely play. Intriguing raw stuff with untapped potential. Needs to work on secondaries and command and control, but lefties who get up to the high-90s and miss bats are not that easy to find, so presents a really intriguing package for a pitching prospect.

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

Red Sox select Noah Dean with fifth-round pick (7.18.22)
