Stat Review
How does Luis Escobar compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9

Minor League Barometer: Promoting the Phenoms
August 15, 2017
Jesse Siegel delivers his Minor League Barometer again this week, this time looking at some highly touted prospects that have already gotten the call to the big leagues.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
Escobar pitched in short-season West Virginia's rotation last summer as a 20-year-old, and established himself as one of the Pirates better low-level arms. The right-hander registered a 2.93 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 67.2 innings, compiling a 61:28 K:BB. He features a fastball in the low-90s and showed improved command as the season progressed. Escobar walked 16 batters (with 48 strikeouts) in his final 55 innings after issuing 12 free passes in his first 12.2 innings. Expect the 6-foot-1, 160-pound Columbian to make the step to full season ball in 2017. The four-pitch pitcher will look to continue improving his command as he doesn't possess a wipeout pitch, leaving him with a mid-rotation ceiling.
