Rays Community Prospect #12 Runoff


For the first time, we will be doing a runoff. There was a tie in the last voting between Enny Romero and Joseph Cruz. These are the only two options.

Joseph Cruz: Throws strikes and limits hits. Of course, this very much could change as he moves up to AA. His fastball sits at 92-94 although I have seen him hit 97 before. His curve (from what I have seen). I can't find much other scouting, but I can tell you from the several times I have seen him that his offspeed stuff needs work. His curve is too loopy and inconsistent and his changeup is below average. I am not sure how he did that well for his stuff, but he did. He did throw his offspeed stuff quite enough though, which kept hitters off balance. This in turn made his fastball better.

Enny Romero: As a 19 year old out of the Dominican Republic, Enny Romero dominated this year as his stuff advanced. He dominated in Princeton with an ERA in the 1's while even lowering it in the short time he was in Hudson Valley. As far as stuff, he has a mid-90's fastball (BA) and a good/potential plus curve (BA). I have also heard from people who have seen him that he has a changeup. He just needs to keep on progressing.
