Considered one of 10 international prospects to watch by Baseball America and also on the Colorado Rockies’ list of 20 best prospects. Made brief but successful debut in Pioneer League (4-0, 1.87 ERA in 43 innings) after dominating Dominican Summer League with 6-1 record, 1.52 ERA in nine starts. A prolific strike-thrower, he throws 88-92 mph with a chance to improve velocity. He also locks in on hitters in a pinch, as they are 0-for-12 against him with runners on and two outs.
