Gamboa is the owner of one of the most electric arms on the west coast, with a 94-96 mph fastball and the ability to blow it past good hitters. He stands a projectable 6-foot-5, 185 pounds, leaving some to dream he can throw even harder. Despite his velocity, Gamboa's ERA got worse every year at Peppedine, capped by a 5.05 ERA in a junior season shortened by arm tenderness. Gamboa is seen as a major injury risk because of his delivery. He has a stand-up finish with an arm recoil, and his arm is not in proper position at foot strike. He also struggles with wildness. Gamboa profiles purely as a reliever due to his control struggles and injury risk, but his frame and big velocity make him intriguing to some.
