BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Luis Lugo is huge (6-foot-5) and has plus velocity, so if the starting-pitcher thing doesn't work out he can either be a reliever or, as a fallback, a Marvel Comics superhero secret identity. (Peter Parker, Bruce Banner, Matt Murdock... they're almost always alliterative.)
2015 Luis Lugo has the prototypical starter's body but he's lacking prototypical major-league arm speed; a back-end future is still possible.
2014 A 6-foot-5 hurler with three projectable pitches, Luis Lugo has the makings of a no. 4 starter.

2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Could you provide some info on some more unknown prospects? Sebastian Elizade, Luis Lugo, and Matt Milroy?
(TheWildPitch from NY)
Man, you're getting out of my depth on these ones. These are beautiful questions for the BP Prospect Team, as they're far smarter than me and have seen these guys play. I'll be catching more minor-league games this summer, now that grad school is done for the summer. In fact, I'll be checking out Kane County tonight. (J.P. Breen)
