  • Deolis Guerra

    Has anyone seen him pitch? Or have any info on him? All I really know, is that he is 18 in A+ and had some decent statistics (especially for a kid his age).

    Anyways, I can't find alot about him in my google searches, so I was just wondering if anyone here had something to say about him!

    Thanks in advance!

    Deolis throws with a straight overarm delivery and has the following arsenal of pitches: fastball (low 90's though considering his age that should increase), changeup (his out pitch and his best pitch, good movement), curve (developing pitch with a bit of drop to it because of his arm angle). He has a somewhat minimal windup/delivery and good, repeatable mechanics. He was an international FA signing I believe at age 16. He has good poise for his age and while he's really difficult to project (other than as a starter of some kind...good endurance and three pitches), he has a very high ceiling.

        My info would be he has a funny name, but after Dalowski posted, I feel like an idiot for saying this.

          Thanks, I appreciate the compliments. I really do. But I'm really just an amateur and 1) have a good source, 2) use this and other information for the Sim League I operates with my Dad, and 3) know my Minor Leaguers mostly in hopes of finding the next big rookie while going through boxes of baseball cards.

            To follow up on Dalkowski110's comments, Guerra is at least 3 years away at this point, if he goes on schedule. He's not a fast track candidate, especially due to his age. The Mets seem in no hurry to rush him, which is fine.

              "The Mets seem in no hurry to rush him, which is fine."

              Considering some of their other prospects (Pelfrey, Martinez, to a certain degree Mulvey), it's truly a breath of fresh air.

                Finally. They may actually be learning something for a change.
