Scouting Report

Berrios looks like one of the most complete, three pitch pitchers in the high school class. He throws his fastball at 90-92 mph and bumps 93 at times, generating it mostly from his outstanding plus arm speed. Berrios lives on the plate with his fastball, but more impressive is his feel for his secondary pitches. He mixes a solid-average changeup at 80-83 mph as well as a high potential plus curveball at 72-76 mph. He is smart about mixing his pitches and attacks hitters consistently.
