BA Report
Huertas is arguably the top lefthander in a Puerto Rican crop short on pitchers. He has a fastball that sits 86-89 mph and touches 91 with gloveside run from a loose arm action. He offers a large frame at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds with broad shoulders, a strong lower half and room for projection. Although his offspeed stuff is inconsistent, he shows enough feel for spin to project at least an average breaking ball and has some feel for a changeup. Huertas struggled with his command at the Excellence Games in May, often missing up and armside, but he is generally around the plate. He has no college commitment.

Should be a pretty easy sign then.

Joel Huertas Ortiz is a 2014 LHP with a 6-3 210 lb. frame from Dorado, PR who attends Carmen Sol HS. Big mature build with good lower half strength. Slow paced hand drop delivery, medium length arm action, arm is smooth and works well, gets downhill from a high 3/4's arm slot, tends to drift to third base side in delivery. Fastball topped out at 90 mph, has improved 6 mph over the past year, fastball mostly straight with some sink at the bottom of the zone, pitches to his arm side consistently. Curveball has tight spin and downer bite, good depth at times, could throw CB more, potential plus pitch with more feel/command. Rare change up was a bit firm. Shows big improvement and two pro quality pitches on a strong lefty. Good student. Named to the Caribbean Showcase Top Prospect team.

From Perfect Game

AA doesn't sound very high on his upside

Whoop, whoop.

Only Tristan Gray left of the guys I wanted signed. McKinney and Bonfield was a pipe dream...
