Scouting Report: Dominican right-hander with an average, filled-out frame. Limited projection in body. Over the top delivery, quick to the plate. Fastball sits 91-93 mph, topping out at 94 mph with some arm-side run. Good arm speed on mid-80s changeup that showed dive and missed bats. Slurvy 78-81 mph breaking ball with short 11-5 break. Lacks feel for pitch. Loopy at lower velocities, but showed depth on occasion. Very good control.
