Guevara has a good arm, but he?s one of the few guys in pro baseball that still throws a screwball, and because the pitch has kind of been phased out, scouts aren?t high on him. His numbers have been excellent, and he?s racked up a ton of strikeouts in the minors. He?s only 25 going on 26, so he?s not a castoff just yet. If the Phillies take him and try to turn him into something he isn?t, then it won?t work, but if they let him do his thing, he could be a nice 6th inning reliever.

I'm not drawing comparisons to the man but to the pitch and there were nights when mecir would come in and was unhittable, toally and completely unhittable. I look at this guy's numbers and did before the draft and you have really like those SO totals. Yes, it AA but for $50k he's worth a look.

 

He should only turn out as well as Soria last year.
