  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Extra large frame with long limbs. Maxed out physically.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, starting on the extreme first base side of the rubber. Hides the ball until late, creating some deception. Medium leg kick, quick delivery but doesn't get a ton of extension. Has some recoil after release. Aggressive bulldog mentality. Doesn't fare well against left-handed bats.

Fastball: 94-96 mph four-seamer. Has some vertical drop. Pounds the zone and misses bats. Above-average to plus offering.

Changeup: 87-89 mph with sinking action and fade. Flashes plus but not consistently. Command comes and goes.
  Slider: 84-86 mph with two-lane action, Average offering. Uses the pitch roughly 15% of the time.

Career
Notes: Had Tommy John Surgery in 2017. Drafted in 2019, moved quickly through the Dodgers' system after the COVID year. Traded to Boston one month after his MLB debut.

Summation: Projects as solid up-and-down bullpen arm due to intriguing three-pitch mix. Has potential to work himelf into a high-leverage role if he can refine the command of his secondaries. Well liked among his teammates.
