Prospect Spotlight

Medina’s first season as a full-time starter hasn’t yielded flashy results (2.39 ERA, 3.9 S)/9, 3.2 BB/9 across 11 starts), but the 19-year-old Dominican right-hander was the toast of the NYPL All-Star Game last week. Signed as a minor league free agent in 2014, Medina’s plus fastball sat 93-to-96 mph with late life in his lone inning of work, and he complimented it with a plus to double-plus 79-to-83 mph slider that made some of the league’s best hitters look foolish in the brief appearance. Medina’s changeup is raw (84-to-86 mph, with fade) and he will need to pack on muscle to his lean, athletic build to support bigger innings totals, but his fastball/slider combo alone could make him an interesting late-inning relief candidate down the road.
