Luis Patino - SP San Diego

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if there isn't one already.

 

18 year old Padres RHP striking lots of guys out throwing in the high 90s. BaseballAmerica just called him one of the breakouts of the year and Baseball prospectus just compared him favorably to McKenzie Gore

 

Interestingly enough, his mechanics have drastically changed on video this year. He now looks like a spitting image of McKenzie Gore's form, a little like Kershaw, but from the right side.

 

Expect this name to slide in some top 100s this off-season on the back end with room for growth because of his age. If he has a late growth spurt and gets a little taller, the hype will get real.

The helium is just starting to get big with him, I expect he'll really blow up when they're doing the new top 100 lists over the winter

Ranked in the 40's on both fangraphs and mlb.com which made me take note.

Obviously a long way away but is there ace upside with this kid?

Yes. Hopefully he avoids a TJ. That seems to be what makes or breaks these top pitching prospects.

Fangraphs FV 55

 Conservatively, Patiño has mid-rotation upside, but how the changeup and breaking ball command develop matter because that’s where there’s room for significant growth.

Baseball America list him at #67

Razzball #74

 

I own him and hoping for #1 or #2 upside, pitchers are tough man.

facing a little bit of a test in High A but still climbing.  .182 BAA but K:BB sits at 29:16 in 24 innings.  read a great article on him yesterday though how he is just a presence on the mound and in the clubhouse.  the word "charismatic" was throw out.  i personally like that.  definite SP 1/2 upside is he can harness his stuff

He really needs his change up to develop.

Oh my did this kid impress in the Futures game last night. 

Consistently 98-99 and it looks easy. Great composure as well, this kid will be a star.

Agree. First time I’ve seen him pitch and very impressed. Will be buying shares for sure.
