Physical Description: Physical, mature frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Short arm action with significant effort as he comes forward. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Hides the ball well in his delievery.

Fastball: 93-95 mph. Heavy pitch with late downward life.

Slider: 86-87 mph. Short, vertical break.

Curveball: 80-82 mph. Slower, more loopy breaking ball.

Career Notes: Was originally a catcher before converting to pitching late on. That conversion led to him signing with the Red Sox as a 20 year old prior to the 2018 season.

Summation: As a late signee, De La Rosa is behind the developmental curve, but he shows interesting raw stuff for a converted catcher. Arm is very strong and can dial up his fastball, but command and control and secondaries need major refinement.

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