Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50

When Medina, who signed back in May 2014, finished among the South Atlantic League top 10 in strikeouts and ERA during his full-season debut in 2017, there was a lot of anticipation over what the right-hander might do for an encore. While he was a little more uneven in some aspects of his performance, his pure stuff excited the Phillies enough for him to be added to the 40-man roster this past offseason.

Pure stuff-wise, Medina's is as electric as perhaps any prospect's in baseball and when he's locked in, he can be virtually unhittable. He uses his three-pitch mix to miss a lot of bats, striking out 10 per nine innings in his first two years of full-season ball. His fastball now comfortably sits in the 92-94 mph range and he can easily touch 95-96 mph, commanding the pitch well. Medina also throws it with a ton of movement, getting ground-ball outs at a consistent clip. Both his sharp slider and his changeup flash plus at times.

Medina throws a lot of strikes, but he's still learning to harness his premium stuff within the zone, and it was inconsistencies with that which sometimes led to him getting hit in the Florida State League. He just needs more development time to iron that out and the Phillies feel he has the athleticism, aptitude and competitiveness to reach his ceiling as a frontline starter.
