My pal Adrian Burgos Jr.’s guy, Alex Pompez, would probably love Jose Fernandez. This is a big guy of Cuban descent who doesn’t do much more than flash a big arm on the bump and can light up a radar gun. When I saw Fernandez, he was 94, which in this draft puts him near the front of the line. He can probably be a 94-97 guy as a pro. If you can give this guy a hard slider, you can turn him into a closer, close your eyes tight, and hope he throws strikes.
