2011 Prospect Preview

Traded to the LA Dodgers with Tim Federowicz and Stephen Fife in a three-way deal in which Boston also sent Chih-Hsien Chiang to Seattle, LA sent Trayvon Robinson to Seattle, and Seattle sent Erik Bedard and Josh Fields to Boston (July 2011)

Scouting Report
: Large-framed righty dominated DSL competition in 2009, but was slightly old for the league. Mechanics can use some tuning-up, but he demonstrates a live arm. Attacks hitters. Fastball sits 92-95 mph and shows more life (96-97 mph) in short blasts. Also throws a 79-81 mph slurve, that has some potential if he can sharpen it and get it up in  the mid-80s.  Lots of projection, but he's behind the age scale because he signed at 19, unlike many other Latin prospects who sign at 16. Needs to develop his curveball to be starter material. Has accumulated impressive strikeout numbers at every level so far with the Red Sox.
