  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic, skinny right-hander with remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Throws from the stretch at all times, but with a significant leg kick in which his knee gets up to the height of his head with the bases empty. Quick arm. Violent, arm-heavy delivery with recoil. Short stride to the plate.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Still working on finding command and control.

Curveball: 79-81 mph. Tight, 11-to-5 shape. Lacks depth. Does not get over it consistently and will yank it to the glove side often.

Changeup: 84-85 mph. On the firm side, but has come down a couple miles per hour since signing. Looks like a two-seam fastball at times.
  Career Notes: Grew up in the Dominican Republic, but moved to the United States and went to high school in Brighton, Mass. Drafted by the Marlins in the 21st round of the 2019 draft. Played primarily shortstop in final season at Western Oklahoma State College, making only four appearances on the mound, but Boston signed him as a pitcher. Named to the NJCAA Division II Region 2 All-Conference team and Plains District All-Tournament team. Made it to the NJCAA Division II finals before losing in the final. Was committed to Oklahoma State. Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021.

Summation: Potential low-minors depth arm. Athletic and is relatively new to pitching at higher levels. Needs to develop as a pitcher, more of a thrower at this point.
