Jhonathan Diaz GCL Red Sox  |  Pitcher


Age: 19
Born: September 13, 1996
Valencia, VZ
Height: 6-0
Weight: 160
Bats: Left
Throws: Left
Drafted: Not drafted
How Acquired: International free agent (July 2013)

Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part Three (10.10.14)

Physical Description: Slightly under-sized left-hander. Athletic, some projection in frame.

Mechanics: Throws from the a three-quarters arm slot from the third base side of the rubber. Rough mechanics. High leg kick, slight trunk twist and arm hook behind his body. Works quickly. 

Fastball: 89-91 mph. Shows arm-side run. Velocity drops as he works deeper into games. Lacks plane due to height.

Curveball: 74-76 mph. Will show tight rotation when he finishes his delivery and snaps it off.

Changeup:  79-81 mph. Decent feel and deceptive arm speed.

Career Notes: Did not pitch in 2015 due to a knee injury 

Summation: Profiles best in a bullpen role due to lack of physical projection and average stuff. When he consistently finishes his delivery and keeps the ball down, gets a lot of contact on the ground. Showed good composure on the mound when facing much more advanced hitters during the 2014 fall instructional league.
