  Scouting Report & Links      
  Physical Description: Athletic, lean frame with some remaining projection, especially in his upper body. Quick feet. Looks slightly taller than listed.

Mechanics: Throws from a high-three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the third base side. Quick arm. Deliberate, vertical delivery. High leg lift. Could do a better job incorporating his lower half. Finishes upright and square to the plate. Arm action has a stab behind, but is relatively free and easy. Good rhythm in delivery, works quickly. Repeats well. Varies delivery times from the stretch. Has deception in his delivery, hides the ball well behind his head until late, giving hitters less time to pick it up.

Fastball: 91-95 mph. Pitch shows life and sink. Velocity is trending up and has improved each year since he signed. Advanced command and control for his age. Always around the zone; throws competitive pitches, which allows him to work deeper into games. Potential plus offering with refined command.

Curveball: 77-80 mph. Shows confidence and feel in pitch. Will throw in any count. At its best, shows 11-to-5, two-plane break. Can bury down and out of the zone or backdoor the pitch to steal a called strike to get ahead early in the count. Shape varies at times, some have more depth than others. Below-average spin rate. Potential average offering.
  Changeup: 86-88 mph. Splitter-ish movement with late drop down and out of the zone. Reportedly was his best secondary pitch, flashing plus at times during the 2018 season. Rarely incorporated the pitch in 2019 looks with Lowell.

Career Notes: Red Sox purchased his rights from Aguascalientes in the Mexican League for $550,000 in April 2018. Impressed with the DSL in 2018, showing advanced control for his age. Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Very interesting young arm with a strong track record of performance in the low minors against age advanced competition. Shows the early makings of a three-pitch mix with all showing at least average potential. Doesn’t stand out physically, but still young enough that could grow some more. One of the more intriguing arms in the systems low minors, has the early makings of a back end starter profile, but long way to go between what he is now and what he could be in the future.
