Acquired/Hometown: Free Agent (2018); La Romana, DR


May 22, 2018 — Inland Empire 66ers (High-A, California League)
Acquired by the Los Angeles Angels as a minor league free agent after the San Francisco Giants released him earlier in 2018 … Strong kid with a big, sturdy, durable frame; reminds me some of fellow Angels reliever Samil De Los Santos with a potential late-inning power arsenal … Three-quarters release with very long arm swing in the back … Sat 95-99 here with his fastball; pitch shows some arm-side life and occasional sink thanks to long, loose arm action and whip-like arm speed. Paired it with a 74-78 slider; pitch showed a couple different humps at points, but needs to be thrown harder with better late break to really miss bats. Timed 1.24 – 1.31 to the plate with runners on … Power arsenal is impressive, but Eduardo Rivera is old for the level and needs to move up to Double-A or better to really get on the radar; set-up profile at ceiling, but window closing fast.
