Frederis Parra, RHP, GCL Cardinals
Tall, lean 19-year-old right-hander who looked to be taller than the 6-foot-3 he was listed at. Great pitcher's body that should hold more weight. Player has a quick arm and extremely loose arm action that generates easy velocity. Fastball sat between 90-94 over six innings of work and he maintained his velocity. The pitch has little movement but he generates a good downward plane. Pitcher used his fastball exclusively for first three innings and was still effective. Featured a slider at 77-78 mph with hard downward break. Pitch was inconsistent at present but further along than most GCL sliders and showed the potential to be a plus pitch. Changeup was currently ahead of the slider and was a present average pitch on the day I saw him. Player was consistent with the pitch and threw it for strikes. Features only some arm-side fade, but his quick arm speed created additional deception. Will be a plus pitch when he learns to generate more movement on the pitch.

This is Parra's first stateside experience, which is the only reason he's still in a complex league. His pure stuff is good enough for a full-season league right now and he will likely be promoted to a short-season league after a few starts. Parra is currently better than some of the guys in the Cardinals’ Palm Beach (High-A) rotation. He is still extremely far away and is a high-risk prospect, but he has a high ceiling. Potential 2/3 starter. –Jeff Moore
