Jose is an athletic and talented 2021 RHP prospect. On the bump, Jose gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and has a loose arm action. He finds a balance point, he has a strong front side, and rides his back leg down hill. He has tail on his fastball, he has a late break on his curveball, and gets run on his changeup but needs to take some velocity off the pitch. At the plate, Jose starts in a squared stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and he gets to a balance position at contact. He rotates his lower half, he has a direct swing path, and a pull side approach. Jose will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
