Down on the Farm...

Esteban Mesa
Syracuse Crunch

Score - 64
Fastball Velocity - 65
Fastball Movement - 70
Control - 65
Command - 60
Slider - 60

Esteban has the potential to be a top tier closer for Syracuse. He has excellent control and very good command of his pitches. His fastball has been clocked at 91 to 94 MPH and looks like it could tick up two MPH in the future. The movement on the fastball breaks into left-handers and away from right-handers. He has a little trouble with right-handed batters. The slider is a plus pitch while the fastball is a plus plus pitch. He can get a batter out with either pitch. He is a low risk pitcher having already made it to Double A and looks to be handling it well. His ceiling is a top closer with a floor of an above average set up man. Look to see Esteban in the majors sometime next year.
