Luis Heredia Video From Today at Pirate City

Heredia throwing today at Pirate City

Today was a camp day at Pirate City.  The Pirates did a workout in the morning, then played two inter-squad games.  Top Mexican pitching prospect Luis Heredia pitched in one of the games.  I noticed he was pitching during his first batter, and was able to quickly react and get video of his next two batters.  Heredia struck out the first two hitters he saw, and had a two strike count on the third hitter, but the inning was called when he reached his pitch count after two foul balls.

Heredia was throwing 92-94 MPH in the two at-bats where I had a radar gun on him, and I was told that he ranged from 91-96.  The biggest thing I noticed was how effortlessly he throws the ball, while still getting the high velocity.  It’s hard to believe that he’s only 16 years old.  There’s also talk about how good he could be when he fills out, but when you look at him, he already looks like he is filled out.  He was dominating the opposing hitters today.  They were mostly lower level players, which is about the talent level he should face this year.  Here is the video from his last two batters, along with some pitch readings in the lower right hand corner.
