Physical Description: Skinny frame. Athletic build with some remaining projection. Needs to add strength.

Mechanics: Low three-quarters arm slot. Does not use a wind-up. Stiff delivery. Slings the ball. Short arm action behind, hides the ball well.

Fastball: 88-91 mph. Tops out at 92 mph. Pitch will show sink. Fringe-average potential.

Slider: 76-81 mph. Slurvy breaking ball. Long, 2-to-8 break. Some are more horizontal, others have more vertical shape. Inconsistent at present, but will flash average potential.

Changeup: 84-85 mph. Some feel for pitch, but needs work. Flashed the ability to turn it over and bury it down and out of the zone for swinging strikes. Fringe-average potential.

Career Notes: Opening Day starter for the DSL Red Sox 2 in 2019. Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

Summation: Shows the early makings of a three-pitch mix, but does not have stand-out stuff. Lacks a pitch that projects as better than average, but does have some deception in his delivery and some feel. Has a ways to go developmentally and future potential depends on him maturing physically and his stuff improving.

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