Taylor Guerrieri: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Just 21 years old, Guerrieri may have the highest ceiling in the Rays' large stable of talented pitching prospects. His professional debut was limited to 52 innings at Hudson Valley of the New York-Penn League, but Guerrieri delivered a dominant 45:5 K:BB while holding the opposition without a home run over 52 innings. Already 6-foot-3, Guerrieri has little difficulty pushing his four-seam fastball to 95 mph on occasion, while also working in a two-seamer, curveball and changeup. All four of his current offerings grade out as plus pitches, and Guerrieri possesses the ability to command his arsenal exceptionally well. The Rays' track record of developing young pitching paired with his enormous potential could make the long-term investment a worthwhile one in dynasty leagues, even with the organization's tendency to promote prospects very gradually. Look for Guerrieri to begin his ascent to full-season ball with a debut at Low-A Bowling Green in 2013.
