WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Fuentes when he signed threw 84-88 mph, with a curve and change. A lot of the attraction with him was projection.
Fuentes pitched mostly in relief and struggled with his control. He also didn’t miss a lot of bats.
Fuentes was ineffective most of the time.
If Fuentes is still around in 2023, it’ll be back in the DSL.
