17-Year-Old PitcherRP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The top pitching prospect available in the July 2, 2019 international signing class, Lara signed with the Nationals for $1.25 million and immediately turned heads in the fall instructional league. Even with a low-effort delivery, he was sitting at 92-95 mph with his fastball as a 16-year-old. Other than the fact he is a pitching prospect set to make his pro debut as a 17-year-old, the biggest risk factor with Lara is his weight. He is already 6-foot-4, 217 pounds, and while he should eventually be sitting in the upper-90s with his heater, he could get too big to consistently repeat his delivery and command his electric arsenal. His slurvy breaking ball plays well off his fastball, and while no pitcher his age should be judged on the quality of their changeup, his is on the right track to be a quality offering. Look for him to debut as the youngest pitcher in the Gulf Coast League. He has frontline upside. Read Past Outlooks
