Renato Araujo is a 2004 LHP/1B from Brazil. Araujo and his older brother, Gabriel, both participated in the Sunshine East Showcase after traveling from Brazil. Renato is a 2004 age prospect with a 6'6", 200 lb. frame that is long and angular and not especially presently strong. He throws from a very slow and methodical delivery and never really gets his arm accelerated coming through. Otherwise he’s very linear and balanced in his pitching mechanics. Araujo pitched at 78-82 mph early with his fastball, but lost velocity quickly. He threw his curveball in the mid 60’s and threw plenty of them early in the count. He also threw a 65 mph change up. He shows very athletic ability for a 6'6 pitcher. Could develop into a big surprise in the right program.
