RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Rockies used the No. 4 pick in June to land Pint, a prep arm with a highly projectable 6-foot-4 frame. He's not all projection, though, as he already throws his fastball in the high-90s and mixes in two borderline plus secondary pitches, most notably his wipeout slider, which could give him two plus-plus offerings (along with his fastball) in time. Locating those pitches with consistency is an issue, as evidenced by Pint's 5.6 BB/9 rate in his professional debut, and figuring it out may take some time. Of course, there's the fact that his eventual home park in Colorado is a pitcher's nightmare, but Pint has shown an ability to keep the ball on the ground with his offspeed and breaking pitches. The combination of strikeout ability and heavy groundball tendencies could allow the 19-year-old to buck the trend and become one of the rare Coors Field success stories. But again: patience required.
