Edwin Diaz is a 2012 RHP with a 6-3 175 lb. frame from Naguabo, PR who attends Caguas Military Academy. Slender build, long arms and legs, loose whippy actions. Busy delivery with big leg raise, hands over head, extended mid 3/4's to 3/4's release point, works downhill at times. Very inconsistent front side/front leg position, will cruise for 4-5 pitches, then lose it completely for 2-3 pitches. Dominant fastball, sits at 93 mph, touched 94 mph, very good run down in the zone, could throw harder with strength. Flashes tight spin on curveball, proper shape and velocity, throws CB for strikes, CB has improved considerably. Rare change up shows quality, nice run and arm speed. Can be first round talent with improved consistency, has the pitches, arm strength and projection.
