  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. Comes across his body and has a lot of moving parts in his delivery. Has smoothed out delivery some in recent years. Low-effort mechanics. Fringe-average arm speed.

Fastball: 90-91 mph, topping out at 92 mph. Loses velocity as he works deeper into games, ending up more in the 89-90 mph range. Has added velocity as he has physically matured. Will also throw a two-seam fastball at about 85-87 mph with significant arm-side run.

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

  Curveball: 76-78 mph. Big, 1-to-7 break. Replaced low-70s version that was a slow, sweepy pitch that was more of a breaker that rolled to the plate.

Slider:
83-84 mph. Loose with short, 10-to-4 break.

Career Notes: Trained at the same Venezuelan amateur program as Felix Doubront. Participated in 2014, 2015, and 2016 Fall Instructional League. Re-signed with the organization after briefly becoming a minor league free agent in Nov. 2020.
 
Summation:
Fringy, but somewhat improved arsenal with some projection still remaining. Will need to take steps forward as he progresses through the system. Most likely projects as a AAA rotation depth arm.
