Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 50 | Cutter: 50 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Some pitching prospects begin as starters and get moved to the bullpen as professionals. Nogosek was a reliever for three years at Oregon, and a good one who saved 16 games as a junior before getting nabbed in the sixth round of the 2016 Draft by the Red Sox. He had pitched across two levels of A ball in his first full season when he was sent with Jamie Callahan to the Mets at the 2017 Trade Deadline for Addison Reed.

Nogosek has a deep repertoire, especially for a reliever, adding and subtracting to miss bats and generate weak contact. He'll throw both a two-seamer that sinks in the low 90s and a four-seam fastball that can touch the mid-90s. He throws both a slider and cutter, which might just be him changing speeds on his slider, very effectively and he'll mix in a fringy changeup from time to time as well. He tends to be around the strike zone, though his control does escape him from time to time.

While the right-hander was an effective closer in college, his stuff is likely short for him to handle that role at the highest level. If he can continue to throw enough strikes and miss bats as he reaches the upper levels, a future as a middle reliever awaits.
