Somewhat polished for his age. Seen as the top pitching prospect in the Dominican Republic in the 2014 signing period, he shows an advanced feel for pitching and utilizes a three-pitch mix. He is lanky and should add 20-30 pounds as he matures. He throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, and his mechanics could use some tightening up. His fastball sits in the low-90s already with good movement, and he throws his changeup—one of the best in the class—often and in any count. Has shown confidence in his curveball but it could use some work.

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