WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

The Pirates signed De Dios at age 17.  He throws in the low-90s with a good slider and good command.

2018
DSL:  0-5-0, 5.28 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, 46.0 IP, 5.7 BB/9, 7.8 K/9

De Dios pitched mostly as a starter in his debut.  He didn’t have a great deal of success, with control being a particular problem, but he did show some improvement after a rough first month.

2019
R:  2-4-0, 3.54 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, 40.2 IP, 3.8 BB/9, 7.7 K/9

The Pirates kept De Dios in the rotation in the GCL.  He got hit a little hard — opponents batted .294 against him — but he made progress with his command.  He improved slowly but steadily during the season.

De Dios will open the 2020 season at age 20 and still should have some projection.  How far he goes may depend on whether his stuff takes a step forward.
