Yadiel Flores is a 2017 RHP with a 6-2 159 lb. frame from Yabucoa, PR who attends Puerto Rico BB Academy. Tall and very slender build, very projectable physically. Stays tall over the rubber well, accelerates hard to the plate before release, gets all he can out of his body, full arm action and his arm is on time coming through to release, tends to land a bit open on his front side. Steady mid 80's fastball, topped out at 86 mph, maintained his velocity from the stretch well, has nice running and sinking life on his fastball when down in the zone. Slider flashes tight spin and bite at lower velocities, tends to overthrow his slider at times and throw through the break, got right handed hitters reaching well when he had his slider feel. Did not observe a change up. Interesting young pitcher with two solid pitches and a strong chance to keep improving with additional strength. Has gained 6 mph over the last year. Good student.
