Nestor Cortes is a 2013 LHP with a 5-11 195 lb. frame from Hialeah, FL who attends Hialeah HS. Compact athletic build, strong lower half. Easy delivery, high leg raise, compact quick arm action, hides the ball well in back, stays balanced, polished delivery that has some deception and is repeatable. Fastball topped out at 92 mph, comes out of hand easily, good sink and run at times. Good 1/7 shape on curveball, solid spin and good bite. Outstanding change up, maintains arm speed well, very good late life. Throws strikes with all pitches and can throw to spots, misses bats. Quick worker who knows what he's doing on the mound, dominated. Strong physical resemblance to Gio Gonzalez without Gonzalez's nasty CB at the same age. Signed with Florida International.
