Travieso rivaled Zach Eflin for the most helium of any pitcher in the Southeast. Earlier in his prep career Travieso was a hitter and relief pitcher who showed velocity off the mound but little touch and feel, or secondary pitches for that matter. This spring, Travieso took off the training wheels, starting for Archbishop McCarthy and taking a big step forward in April after getting some innings under him. Travieso's fastball sits in the 91-95 mph range, and at times it's better than that, reaching 98. In his first year throwing a breaking ball, Travieso has developed a hard slider with power that scrapes 86 and sits in the low-to-mid-80s. He's still learning a changeup but already has shown the ability to manipulate the baseball, developing a fastball with two-seam action to help him get to his glove side. Previously considered more of a reliever, Travieso had late helium as his stuff jumped a grade. He could push his way into the first round. He's committed to Miami if teams still believe he's more of a reliever than a starter.
