Scouting Report: Lanky right-hander with lots of room to fill out. High waist with long arms. Over-the-top delivery. Easy mechanics. Starts on the third base side of the rubber, hands held low. Medium leg kick. Can fall off-balance towards first base side after release. Relies primarily on a 91-93 mph sinker which has heavy drop and a nice tail and induces a lot of ground balls. Best secondary pitch is an 84-86 mph changeup with arm side run and downward action. Also mixes in an occasional show me mid 80s slider, which he could tend to rely on more in the future. Below average control. Doesn’t get a ton of strikeouts. Pitched in the Cleveland, Washington, and Texas organizations prior to being claimed by Boston in February 2020. Yet to show major league success. Profiles as an up-and-down reliever with a little bit of upside if he can hone his control and utilize his slider more effectively.

Note: This page will be updated with a scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
