Rafael DePaula Ranks 17th In Latest Prospect List

Rafael DePaula has ranked #17 in the Low A South Atlantic League top 20 prospects list released by Baseball America today. DePaula was the only Yankee to make the list while the top two players were Eddie Butler of the Colorado Rockies and Tyler Glasnow of the Pittsburgh Pirates. DePaula sits comfortably at 91-93 MPH but can hit 95-97 when he really needs to dial one back to get an out. Repeating his delivery and other delivery issues have kept him back from having more than an average breaking ball or further developing his change up but the fact that he has not been pitching professionally long still gives us hope for the future. DePaula is in his age 22 season and posted a 2.94 ERA and a 2.03 FIP in 64 innings for the Charleston Riverdogs before being promoted to Tampa with the Yankees.
