  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Medium, athletic frame. Has a good amount of projection left and should add strength as he matures.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot from the middle of the rubber. Steps bakwards toward first base before a medium-to-high leg kick prior to delivery. Finishes off balance towards first base, with a pronounced post-delivery right leg kick up. Quick arm with short arm action. Moderate arm effort. Solid control for his age.

Fastball: Hitting 95 mph with late armside run at age 16.

Curveball: Mid-70s with great spin and break. Advanced for his age. Reportedly shows high potential.
  Career Notes: Was not a highly-touted amateur prospect out of Venezuela. Began to show much higher promise after signing, particularly in the Tricky League in the summer of 2019. Emerged quickly as a prospect to follow.

Summation: Sleeper prospect with starter potential. High upside arm with a very wide range between what he is now and what he could be.

State of the System: Low Minors Pitchers (4.2.20)
