  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, wiry frame. Long limbs. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a sidearm arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber and slings the ball from a low slot. Repeats delivery well. Very difficult mechanics for left-handed hitters to pick up.

Fastball: 90-92 mph, tops out at 93 mph. Average command and control profile. Does a good job using the pitch to get ahead, then relies on getting whiffs or generating weak contact on pitches out of the zone after that. Pitch shows sink down in the zone.

Breaking Ball: 79-82 mph. Slurvy breaking ball with long, horizontal shape. Lacks tilt, but has substantial horizontal movement. Very difficult for left-handed hitters to hit when combined with his arm slot.
  Career Notes: Dropped his arm slot during his junior year of college. Was selected by the Red Sox in the first round of the minor league phase of the 2022 Rule 5 Draft.

Summation: Potential organizational relief arm. Ceiling of an up-and-down left-handed specialist. Has been extremely effective against left-handed hitters throughout his career, which gives him a chance to reach the big leagues. Lacks a pitch to get right-handed hitters out and has struggled to get them out during his minor league career.

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