  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Medium frame with some remaining projection. High-waisted.

Mechanics: Clean, balanced 3/4 delivery. Good pitchability. Average control and command.

Curveball: Uses his plus 75-77 mph biting curveball in any situation against both righties and lefties. Pitch generates a lot of ugly swings and misses

Fastball: Pitches his curveball off of his 88-91 mph four-seam fastball which has slight sinking action but not much movement otherwise.  Mixes in an occasional mid-80s cutter.

Slider: Low 80s slider with some depth.

  Changeup: 80-82 mph changeup to keep hitters off balance.

Career
Notes: Spent entire career in Tigers' system before being acquired by Boston in January 2020. Has yet to show success at the major league level.

Summation: Profiles as an up-and-down reliever with a chance to stick in the back of the bullpen. Also could be a bulk follower option for a second division club.

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