This kids in the wrong league.

I sure hope he gains a few ticks on his fastball. He's certainly got the frame to do it, but 90-91 isn't leaving much margin for error as he advances.

He's mostly been 90-92 . A lot of hubbub when he touched 94 a few weeks back.

Cantillo promoted to Lake Elsinore to take Patinos spot!

From today's DFR ...

LHP Joey Cantillo was promoted to Lake Elsinore. The 19-year-old has had a massive breakout for Fort Wayne this season. Despite being among the youngest pitchers on the circuit, he’s led the league in virtually every category, including a 1.93 ERA and 128 strikeouts in 98 innings. We interviewed the Hawaiian lefty earlier this summer.

Michael (San Diego):

    How much separation do you have between Weathers and Cantillo at this point?

Kyle Glaser: Not much, at all. I struggled a lot with ranking those two. They're right next to each other in the Handbook (sneak peak: Cantillo is No. 11) and I cannot honestly tell you that I feel 100 percent confident in having ranked Weathers above Cantillo. Weathers has a little more pure stuff and is a bit more of a natural strikethrower, but Cantillo has the better body, work ethic and singular pitch (his CH). It would not surprise me, at all, if we look back in 10 years and Cantillo has way outpitched Weathers and made me look foolish for this year's ranking.

Matt (Ohio):

    Joey Cantillo got 2 or 3 in a rotation upside ?

Kyle Glaser: More 4 or 5, although there are a few lefties with his profile (87-91 mph, great CH) who have exceeded that, a la Marco Gonzales. (Not saying that's a direct comp, just an example of a guy who has done it).
