2015 Top 40 Season in Review
A Glorius Story: From batting records to draft... (3.23.16)
Scouting Scratch: Cosart, Glorius, Fernandez... (7.12.16)

Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with a solid pitcher's frame that has some projection remaining.

Mechanics: Over-the-top arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Some effort in delivery; slight rock back and head jerk. Arm action is on the long side behind with a wrist wrap. Live, quick arm.

Fastball: 92-94 mph. Tops out in the high-90s. Will show late life and cut when he finishes the pitch, and has shown bat-missing ability. Command and control need refinement; will overthrow at times, leaving the pitch up and out of the zone. Potential plus-to-better offering.

Cutter: High-80s. Will flash late, hard bite at its best.

Changeup: 82-85 mph. Shows late drop and splitter-like action on occasion, but is inconsistent and will float to the plate at times. Tends to slow body and telegraph pitch. Below-average potential. Didnít throw in outings scouted in Spring Training 2017.

Curveball: 78-80 mph. Shows 11-to-5 break and vertical depth when he snaps it off. Didnít throw in outings scouted in 2016.

Career Notes: Didnít start pitching until college. Garnered interest from the Twins, Royals, Tigers, Giants, and Padres before signing with the Red Sox as an undrafted free agent.

Summation: Potential middle reliever if cutter continues to develop and velocity ticks back up. Good pitcherís frame and fastball/slider combination has potential. Needs to refine command and control. Young arm, still developing as a pitcher.
