Luis Patino
19-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A dominant full-season debut allowed Patino to emerge as a top-five pitching prospect in the top system in baseball, which is no small feat. Among Midwest League pitchers who threw at least 80 innings, Patino had the lowest FIP (2.33), lowest WHIP (1.07), highest K-BB% (22.4) and also happened to be the youngest pitcher in that subset. He dominates with a mid-90s fastball and a pair of potentially plus breaking balls. His changeup is still a work in progress, but given his age and advanced feel, it would not be surprising if that too ended up being a plus pitch for the 6-foot, 192-pound righty. He threw 70-plus pitches in all but one of his 17 starts, so he has experience turning a lineup over multiple times. While there is a temptation to ding shorter righties, Patino’s repertoire will allow him to have success at the highest level. From a dynasty-league perspective, the only knock is that he is a pitching prospect who is a couple years away from the majors. Read Past Outlooks
Carries no-hitter into fifth inning
PSan Diego Padres  A
August 7, 2018
Patino allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and one walk while striking out eight over 5.1 innings Monday in Low-A Fort Wayne's 5-4 loss to Lansing.
ANALYSIS
Patino had a no-hitter going through four innings and endured some minor bumps thereafter before exiting the rain-shortened outing. All things considered, it was yet another impressive outing for the 18-year-old, who matched his career high in strikeouts while whittling his ERA and WHIP down to 2.43 and 1.06, respectively. Patino is somewhat overlooked in a farm system that's rich in pitching, but he should gain more attention in dynasty formats as some of the more advanced talent in the Padres organization graduates to the big leagues.
