Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 70 95 97 A naturally fluid and aesthetically pleasing throwing motion generates easy velocity from a three-quarter release point.
Slider 55 85 90 Patino's easy velocity translates to a hard, lateral moving slider. Although currently inconsistent in movement and velocity (83 to 90 MPH), the pitch should develop into a plus-offering.
Curveball 60 75 79 A sharp breaking 11-to-5 curveball stands on its own as a plus pitch. When served alongside a 95-plus fastball and Patino's other two plus pitches, it becomes even filthier.
Changeup 60 87 88 Good deception and arm-speed help establish Patino's plus changeup, adding a level of craftiness to the power-stuff.

The naturally gifted Patino is rapidly progressing as he develops his impressive talents. His aptitude and high ceiling make him one of the top pitching prospects in baseball.
