Scouting Report
: Right-hander with an average frame. Good athlete was also a solid hitter as a prep player. Attended the same high school and junior college as former Red Sox prospect Josh Reddick. Fastball sits 90-93 mph, has touched 95 mph. Solid-average control. Also mixes in a high 70s breaking ball. Has only pitched out of bullpen as a pro. Dominated GCL competition in 2012, and continued success in A-Ball at the age of 20 in 2013. Profiles as a possible middle reliever, but will need to prove himself at each level.
