  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall left-hander with a solid frame. Thick at present, but frame could support added weight as he physically matures. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Works from the third base side of the rubber. Uses three-quarters arm slot with high leg kick and long arm action. Some front-side deception caused by a slight pause at the top of his delivery. Comes across his body and has a lot of moving parts in his delivery. Fringe-average arm speed.

Fastball: 88-90 mph, topping out at 91 mph. Loses velocity as he works deeper into games, ending up more in the 86-88 mph range. Could add velocity as he physically matures, as he lacks strength at present.

Curveball: 69-72 mph. Long, slow, 1-to-7 break. Sweepy pitch is more of a breaker that rolls to the plate.

Changeup: 80-82 mph. Has some feel for offering and at its best, will show fade. Will slow down arm and body at times, telegraphing pitch.

  Slider: 82-83 mph. Loose with short, 10-to-4 break. Didn’t throw during look at Spring Training in 2016 or in Lowell at the start of the regular season in 2016, so may have shelved pitch.

Career Notes: Trained at the same Venezuelan amateur program as Felix Doubront. Participated in 2014, 2015, and 2016 Fall Instructional League.
 
Summation: Fringy arsenal with some projection remaining. Long way to go developmentally and stuff will need to take a step forward as he progresses through the system.
