Physical Description: Tall, long-limbed right-hander. Solid frame with minimal remaining projection. Strong lower half, looks the part.

Mechanics: Throws over the top. Doesn’t use a wind-up. Medium leg kick. Arm stays behind body late to create deception. Gets good plane on his pitches. Fringy arm speed.

Fastball: 90-92 mph. Doesn’t have overwhelming velocity, but does a good job cutting and sinking the pitch. Plus control with average command at present, but could develop plus command. Needs to prove pitch can miss bats against more advanced pitching. Average potential pitch.

Changeup: 81-83 mph. Inconsistent feel. Pitch shows some drop at its best, but lacks separation from fastball. Has confidence in pitch, will throw in any count. Average potential.

Curveball: 72-76 mph. Long, 11-to-5 break. Tends to slow arm and cast the ball to the plate on occasion. Below-average potential

Slider: Added an 83-84 mph slider in 2018. SoxProspects scouting team has yet to see the pitch used in game action.

Career Notes: Signed at age 17 out of the Domincan during the early international signing period in 2014. Participated in the 2015 Fall Instructional League. After being slated as a reliever for Lowell in 2017, forced his way into the rotation in 2018.

Summation: Profiles as an emergency up and down arm. Ceiling of a back-end starter. Stuff is fringy to profile as a major league starter, but command and control profile and raw stuff allow him to pitch above his raw stuff. If advanced command and control continues to show at the upper levels has a chance to exceed profile of what’d you’d expect given his arsenal.
