Roman Fondon is a 2008 LHP/1B with a 6'2'', 178 lb. frame from Pembroke Pines, FL who attends Flanagan HS. He has a mature build with good present strength. Fondon doesn't project much as far as stuff goes but he doesn't need to in order to be successful, as he already is one of the most successful pitchers in the 2008 class. He has three quality pitches he throws for strikes from a variety of arm angles. Fondon has an effortless delivery and is in control of his body and arm action. His fastball was 87-88 mph in Cincinnati with different types of running and sinking action. Fondon's change up is a very good pitch and he'll mix it in at all points in the count. His curveball has good velocity at 76 mph and solid spin. Fondon isn't a radar gun type of prospect but he'll win a lot of games during his baseball career.
