  Scouting Report & Links      
  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. Currently below-average.

Curveball: 80-82 mph. Slower, more loopy breaking ball. Also currently below-average.
  Career Notes: Was originally a catcher before converting to pitching late on in his amateur career. That conversion led to him signing with the Red Sox as a 20-year-old prior to the 2018 season. Impressed in the DSL in 2018, skipped from the DSL to Lowell in 2019. Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019.

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 currently lacks an average secondary pitch.
