LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2004 National Underclass Dec 28-30  
Latos is a 6-5, 200 lb junior right handed pitcher from Florida who was one of the top prospects at the World Underclass Showcase. In addition to his pitching ability, he would also make the prospect charts as a hitter/athlete as well. Latos has a long, angular body type, with long legs, a slender waist and sloping shoulders. There is plenty of present strength in his body but the potential to get plenty stronger. Latos has a long, flowing and quick arm action and solid delivery mechanics. He works quickly and throws strikes with all his pitches. Latos’ fastball was solid in the 86-89 mph range and is very projectable to move into the low and maybe even mid-90’s in the future. He maintains good downward angle on his fastball from a ¾’s release point. His curveball lacked ideal velocity at 66-69 mph but he got good depth on pitch and spotted it effectively. Latos also showed a feel for a 68-70 mph change up. As a hitter, Latos really showed some nice power potential and showed it in games against live pitching as well as in batting practice. He has a wide stance with a good hand load, a short path to the ball and very good extension out front. With nice 7.2/4.37 speed for his size and obvious arm strength, Latos is a DI level corner infield/outfield prospect, too. Highest Ceiling Prospect!
