  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Large frame, physically maxed out.

Mechanics: Over-the-top delivery starting from the third base side. Medium leg kick. Fairly effortful delivery. Fades to first base side post release.

Fastball: 93-96 mph. Uses the pitch two-thirds of the time. Cuts left.

Slider: 80-85 mph. Glove-side two plane movement.

Changeup: 84-86 mph. Clear third pitch, used rarely.
  Career Notes: Signed out of the Dominican in 2010. MLB debut with Houston in 2015. Part of thrade for Gerrit Cole in 2018. Spent a very short amount of time with the organization in August/September 2021 as an MLB depth reliever before being claimed off waivers by Oakland.

Summation: Bullpen arm with major league experience. Emergency up-and-down arm or Triple-A insurance.
