Finally putting it together after being drafted in the DR at the age of 16.

The previous SoxProspects report said "Fastball sits 85-87 mph without much life" so it was updated recently. I did hear Lepler say 93 a few times on Salem's radio broadcast, so the bullpen is treating him well. Not to mention he is an extreme ground ball pitcher. He has been ridiculous this year.

Scouting Report: Lefty with a solid frame. and a 3/5 delivery. Pitches exclusively from the stretch. Fastball sits between 91-93 mph and tops out at 95 mph. Secondary pitches include an 81-83 mph circle changeup, a mid-70s slurvey curveball, and a sharp 79-82 mph slider. Gets a lot of swings and misses with his changeup, which has nice downward movement. Excellent command and control, attacks hitters.
So how has he been doing?
He had a 5.3 ERA over his first 12 games, but a WHIP of 1.14 vs his last 7 where his ERA and WHIP have been 1.42.
So regardless of SSS effect on stats comparing gvl to salem, what we can see is that he has maintained his SO/walk rates after his promotion.
Not a bad year for the kid so far.

Sox Prospects updated their scouting report again:
Lefty with a solid frame and a smooth delivery. Pitches exclusively from the stretch. Fastball sits between 88-92 mph and tops out at 95 mph. Secondary pitches include an excellent 81-83 mph circle changeup, a mid-70s slurvey curveball, and a sharp 79-82 mph slider. Gets a lot of swings and misses with his changeup, which has nice downward movement. Excellent command and control, attacks hitters.
He has held lefties to a .188 avg in AA (SSS). I would suggest he is making a case to be considered in the '40 man roster crunch' discussion.
