Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 50 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

The grandson of former big league catcher Bill Plummer, Menez caught the eye of scouts by pitching well in the Alaska League during the summer of 2015 and as a junior at The Master's (Calif.) the following spring. He did little to distinguish himself in his first two pro seasons after signing for $75,000 as a 14th-rounder in 2016, but he broke out and led all Minor League left-handers with 171 strikeouts in 135 1/3 innings last year. He has been even more effective in 2019 while jumping from Double-A to the big leagues.

Menez works at 90-93 mph and touches 95 mph with his fastball, which he can work to either side of the plate. It generates a surprising amount of swings and misses because its high spin rate creates the illusion that it rises. His slider also misses bats and serves as is his best secondary pitch, followed by his changeup and curveball.

Menez has some deception in his delivery that throws off hitters' timing, though he sometimes battles the strike zone as well. He has enjoyed more success against left-handers than right-handers, and he should have a floor as at least a situational reliever. But he continues to thrive as a starter and could get an opportunity in San Francisco's rotation before too long.
