Physical Description: Medium,
athletic frame. Has a good amount of projection left and should
add strength as he matures.
Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot from the middle of
the rubber. Steps backwards 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.

Changeup: In the early
stages of developing the pitch.
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. Was slowed by injuries in 2021
and only pitched in one game.
High-ceiling, low-floor arm. Wide-range of potential outcomes,
but has shown among the best raw stuff of any teenage arm in the
system. Needs to get on the mound after having lost 2020 due to
the covid-19 pandemic and 2021 to injury. If he gets healthy and
shows the type of stuff he has in workouts, could fly up the
system’s prospect rankings.
This page will be updated with a scouting
report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
