Undersized right-hander with minimal physical projection. Stocky
build, strong lower half.
Throws over the top from the first base side. Effort in
delivery. Quick to the plate. Short, quick arm action. Arm heavy
delivery. Hides the ball well behind his body before coming
forward. Pitches downhill when he stays on top of the ball, but
has the tendency to lose release point at times.
Fastball: 89-92 mph. Tops out at 94 mph. Pitch shows
cut at times and sink when down in the zone. Hittable when
elevated. Has some idea of fastball command. Pitch jumps on
hitters due to overhand arm slot. Will also mix in a two-seam
fastball in the 88-90 mph range. Potential average offering.
Curveball: 67-75 mph. Primarily throws a
loopy 12-6 curveball at 73-75 mph, but will also mix in an
eephus like pitch in the high-60s. Throws harder variation as
primary breaking ball. Will show depth and tight rotation.
Potential fringe-average offering.
Changeup: 80-82 mph. Straight, throws with
deceptive arm speed. Inconsistent pitch, doesn’t have confidence
in it. While show fade on occasion. Potential below average
Played for the Cuba National Team in the XXVII U-18 Baseball
World Cup in 2015. Struck out 12 consecutive batters in a 2019
playoff game for Lowell.
Projects as an organizational arm. Ceiling of an emergency up
and down arm. Throws strikes and has three pitch mix that should
allow him to stick around for a while, but lacks a pitch to
carry him in the upper minors.
