Scouting Report
Owns a wealth of experience pitching in Mexico, both as a starter and reliever, so his versatility is also added value. Is usually around the strike zone and throws plenty of first-pitch strikes. Does not have dominant stuff, so he must constantly rely on pinpoint control in order to succeed (at all levels). Also, he lacks the ideal size (6-0, 180 pounds) of a pitcher for the big leagues.
Long Range Potential: Versatile right-hander.
