From what I’ve heard, they are both 21 years old. Haven’t been able to confirm that though. Lots of arms down there are in the 90-91 range http://www.piratesprospects.com/2013/07/pirates-sign-seven-more-international-players.html

He wasn’t throwing as hard as previous records indicated, topping out at 91 MPH. So when you add that into the fact that he hasn’t pitched in a pro game in two years, it is tough to be high on him right now. I have to see what his age is now, supposedly he was six months older than he originally said, which wouldn’t be a big deal, but would still make him twenty years old now. He has been in the Pirates academy all this time and looks to be in great shape, so maybe he can move fast once he shakes off the rust

Is he considered the top pitching prospect with the DSL Pirates?
