WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Custodio originally signed with Colorado on July 2, 2018, for $150,000, but the contract was voided when he failed his physical due to a bad bone bruise.  The Pirates signed him during spring training in 2019, by which time he was completely healthy.

2019
DSL:  324/358/448, 210 AB, 8 2B, 3 3B, 4 HR, 10 BB, 18 K, 15-19 SB

Custodio played center the bulk of the time in his debut, but saw some time in the corners.  He had eight outfield assists, so he seems to throw well.  At the plate, he hit for a high average with some power.  He didn’t walk much, but seldom struck out.  He also did well as a base stealer.

Custodio was in fall instructionals and should be in the GCL in 2020.
