Physical Description: Undersized right-hander with minimal physical projection. Stocky build, strong lower half.

Mechanics: Throws over the top from the first base side. Effort in delivery. Quick to the plate. Short, quick arm action. Arm heavy delivery. Hides the ball well behind his body before coming forward. Pitches downhill when he stays on top of the ball, but has the tendency to lose release point at times.

Fastball: 88-90 mph. Tops out at 91 mph. Pitch shows cut at times and sink when down in the zone. Hittable when elevated. Has some idea of fastball command.

Curveball: 66-73 mph. Primarily throws a frisbee two-plane curveball at 71-73 mph, but will also mix in an eephus like pitch in the 60s. Throws primary breaking ball often. Will show depth on occasion.

Changeup: 78-80 mph. Straight, throws with deceptive arm speed. Inconsistent pitch, doesn’t have confidence in it.

Career Notes: Played for the Cuba National Team in the XXVII U-18 Baseball World Cup in 2015.Struck out 12 consecutive batters in a 2019 playoff game for Lowell.

Summation: Projects as an organizational arm. Throws strikes and has three pitch mix that should allow him to stick around for a while, but lacks a pitch to carry him in the upper minors.
