Tall, filled-out pitcher's frame. No remaining projection.
Sturdy lower half.
Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Delivery has considerable
effort and a lot of moving parts. Starts in the stretch on the
first base side. Uses a high leg kick and short arm action.
Delivery is on the stiff side and lands hard before falling off.
94-96 mph. Pitch lacks movement. Average life. Below-average
control at present.
88-90 mph. Short, horizontal break.
79-81 mph. Short, vertical break.
Changeup: Signed as an undrafted free agent with the Phillies in 2014, traded to
Arizona for international bonus pool money in July 2015. Primarily worked
as a starter through mid-2017, at which point he converted to the bullpen.
Acquired by Boston as the player to be named later in the Deven Marrero.
Participated in 2018 Fall Instructional League. Missed the first month of
the 2020 season with COVID-19, and missed the season's final two weeks
with left shoulder tendinitis.
Profiles as an up-and-down reliever with the ceiling of a
mainstay middle reliever. Has intriguing raw stuff,
but hasn't fully put it together yet. Fastball command and
control need refinement, as do his secondary offerings.
