Info on Wilfredo Boscan

It's been difficult finding info on Boscan other than his great numbers.  Does anybody have any additional insight or info?

Impress Your Buds - Wilfredo Boscan, SP, TEX

Through the MLB draft and by raiding the IFA market, the Texas Rangers now find themselves flush with talented young pitchers. Often forgotten among the talk of 95 mile per hour fastballs and hammer curves is Wilfredo Boscan, an 18 year old IFA from the Dominican Republic who is currently undefeated in class A short season ball. With a 7-0 record and solid peripherals, he's looking like the next in a long line of talented Ranger pitching prospects.

let's take a look at Boscan's numbers;

Age 17 - 1.75 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, .210 BAA with a 61/13 K/BB in 56 2/3 IP @ DSL
Age 18 - 2.96 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, .258 BAA with a 54/8 K/BB in 51 2/3 @ A- (SS)

Obviously, a 5.5/1 K/BB ratio at such a young age is impressive. Mix in a 54% GB rate and you have the makings of a pitcher saber-heads will clamor over. Boscan's only drawback is his 51 hits allowed in 51 2/3 IP, but this can be attributed to a rather high .338 BABIP and the possibility that he's just a young pitcher filling up the zone a little too much.  With his current peripherals, further adjustment to the United States, and the addition of some meat to his 6'2" 160 lb. frame, Boscan could take off.
