Minor League Update: Games of May 3

by Kevin Goldstein

Adys Portillo, RHP, Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K.

Portillo was one of the top international signings four years ago, but he's become all but forgotten, mostly because he's just never pitched well for an extended period of time. He's also still only 20 years old and has one of the best arms in the system. Sitting in the mid-90s with an explosive fastball and suddenly showcasing a promising slider, Portillo is starting open eyes in the Midwest League with a 1.72 ERA in six starts and 32 strikeouts in 31.1 innings. Yes, it's been four years, but he's still exceptionally young.
