Scouting Report: Young Dominican right-hander with a strong arm. Smooth delivery. Hides the ball well. Fastball sits 91-93 mph. Approaches home plate on a straight plane. Late release helps mitigate lack of movement. Also throws 74-76 mph curveball. On the loopy side and tends to hang. Needs improvement finishing the offering, but shows good feel for pitch in his hand. Potential to become tighter and deeper with continued repetition. Developing a mid-80s changeup. Has trouble keeping a consistent release point during delivery. Well below-average command and control of arsenal. Rough and raw. Bullpen potential with refinement.
