WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES
|Delgado throws his fastball in the 89-94 mph range and has a good slider and very rudimentary curve. He has the ability to get swings and misses, but also has very erratic mechanics that lead to significant control problems.
Delgado pitched in relief in his debut season, some of the time as the closer. He mostly struggled thanks to significant control problems.
Delgado appeared in one game with Bristol at the begining of the season, then moved to the GCL. Obviously, he had severe control problems.
Delgado is a project and what happens from this point will depend on whether he can get his delivery under some semblance of control.
