[Scouting Report] Luis Cruz

272 Luis Cruz LHP HS L-L 5-9 170
Acad. Santa MonicaCarolina, P.R.9/10/1990

If Cruz was 6-foot-3, scouts would be talking about him as a potential top 3 round selection. He has the best pure arm strength on the Island and has been consistently 91-92 mph this spring with plus late sinking life on his fastball. His arm is fast and fluid, and he doesn’t throw with much effort. Cruz also throws a curveball in the low 70s, which flashes good spin, and a pretty decent changeup. He’s a very young high school senior who won’t turn 18 until September, so although he doesn’t project to get much taller, he has plenty of time to get stronger. He often goes by his middle name, Leroy.

如果Cruz的體格有6-3,球探們可能會把他歸到前三輪的選秀. 他可能是波多黎各的新秀中擁有最棒手臂的一位. 他今年春天可以穩定的投出91-92mph非常有下沉尾勁的速球. 他揮臂非常快速流暢,而不是使用蠻力丟球. 他有low-70下旋快速的曲球和不錯的變速球. 他非常年輕,到今年九月才會滿18歲. 儘管他應該不會在長高多少了,不過他還很年輕相信會變的更強壯.


他雖然是高中生,但來自波多黎各棒的球學校,所以簽下他並不困難,看他的球探報告,可能就是Wesly Wright型的球員.
