► Reports and Scouting:
What Happened: Coming into this year Medina was an 18 year old RHP who had touched 90 last fall after putting up good numbers in the DSL. That ended when some people saw him follow up a Kilome start in extended spring training by sitting 93-96 with a hammer curve in a relief outing. He has since transitioned to the GCL rotation where he is sitting 91-94 touching 95, while a flashing a plus curveball and above average to plus changeup. Medina won’t turn 19 until December and looks to have at least mid rotation starter upside, but there might be more velocity to come.
What Next: This is Medina’s first time as a full time starting pitcher and he recently set a career high in innings at 6. If he keeps up what he has shown so far he will only continue to climb up prospect lists.
