WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Delgado throws his fastball in the 89-94 mph range and has a good slider and very rudimentary curve.  He has the ability to get swings and misses, but also has very erratic mechanics that lead to significant control problems.

2016
DSL:  1-3-5, 5.83 ERA, 1.91 WHIP, 29.1 IP, 8.6 BB/9, 8.0 K/9

Delgado pitched in relief in his debut season, some of the time as the closer.  He mostly struggled thanks to significant control problems.

2017
R:  1-1-0, 12.91 ERA, 2.67 WHIP, 15.1 IP, 12.9 BB/9, 8.2 K/9
R+:  0-0-0, 0.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP, 1.0 IP, 18.0 BB/9, 9.0 K/9

Delgado appeared in one game with Bristol at the begining of the season, then moved to the GCL.  Obviously, he had severe control problems.

Delgado is a project and what happens from this point will depend on whether he can get his delivery under some semblance of control.
