Scouting Report

2020

The Seattle Mariners signed 17 players during the 2014-15 international signing period, including eight who received bonuses of six figures or more. The player from that haul to reach the big leagues first, however, was De Los Santos, who signed for just $15,000. He made his big league debut with his third organization, having been traded to the Padres in November 2015 and then to the Phillies two years later. He received his first callup after a big 2018 in Triple-A and made it back up in 2019, though it was as consistent a season overall.

What role De Los Santos fills at the big league level long-term remains to be seen, but he has plenty of stuff to get big league hitters out, even if he wasn’t executing as well a year ago. He has plenty of arm strength, with a fastball that gets up to 97-98 mph with excellent life, a heater that can miss bats and elicit weak contact. His low-80s slider can be an above-average out pitch at times, though it can morph into a slower breaking ball that looks more like a curve. He’s shown a strong changeup in the past, but he still needs to work on it to make it a more consistent offering, and it tends to be a bit too firm.

De Los Santos tends to be around the plate more often than not, but it’s more control over command. He’s been a starter throughout his Minor League career and he still has a chance to start if he can refine his changeup and command. But his fastball-slider combination would look good in shorter relief stints, and it may come down to what role the big league club needs him to fill.


2019

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50

De Los Santos began his professional career with the Mariners in 2015, but was gone via a trade to the Padres that offseason before he even hit full-season ball. He reached Double-A with San Diego in 2017 and the Phillies acquired him in the Freddy Galvis trade that offseason. The right-hander was a consistent member of the Triple-A rotation, making his big league debut last July.

De Los Santos has two pitches, his fastball and changeup, that are ready to get big league hitters out. He'll throw his fastball typically in the 92-95 mph range and will sit at 93-94 with comfort, showing the ability to reach back for a bit more at times. He'll miss bats and get groundball outs with it when he's at his best. His changeup is his best secondary pitch, one that flashes plus and has good fade to it. His breaking ball remains behind his other two offerings. On a good day, he'll show an average pitch, but it's often slurvy and some see it as more of a slider than a curveball.

Just 23 for all of the 2019 season, De Los Santos has shown he has the durability to remain in a rotation and the Phillies aren't ready to give up on him as a starter just yet. His future might be depending on tightening up and consistently throwing his breaking ball, knowing that his fastball-changeup combination could play up in shorter stints out of the bullpen.


2018

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50

De Los Santos has proven the old adage of "have arm strength, will travel" at a young age. Signed back in July 2014 by the Mariners at age 18, he was traded to the Padres following the 2015 season in the Joaquin Benoit deal. After pitching across two levels of A ball in his first season with his new organization, he pitched well in Double-A in 2017, tossing 150 innings and finishing fifth in the system in strikeouts. The Phillies liked what they saw and were happy to add another young, intriguing arm to their deep stable of pitching prospects in the Freddy Galvis trade last December. A dominant turn in Triple-A led to him making his big league debut in 2018.

The right-hander is capable of using his plus fastball that sits around 94-95 mph and can touch as high as 97-98 mph to both miss bats and get weak contact, and improved command of the pitch has made it an even better weapon. His changeup is his best secondary pitch, one that flashes plus with good fade to it, but he doesn't throw his curve as effectively.

Given that De los Santos shows glimpses of three at least Major League average pitches to go along with durability, he's getting every chance to start and showing it just might come together as a No. 4 type starter. If the breaking ball doesn't come, that fastball-changeup combination could be nasty coming out of the pen.


2017

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

De Los Santos signed with the Mariners at age 18 in July 2014 and after making a successful jump stateside the next year was dealt to the Padres that offseason in the Joaquin Benoit trade. He dominated in his full-season debut, earning All-Star honors at Class A Fort Wayne, advanced to Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore in early June and spent the 2017 season as a 21-year-old in Double-A. The Phillies became his third organization when he was acquired in December's Freddy Galvis deal.

De Los Santos has shown rapid improvement since he began his pro career, and there might be more left in the tank. His fastball usually sits between 93-95 mph and has been gunned as high as 97, and he throws it with plenty of life down in the zone, leading to a good amount of ground-ball outs. De Los Santos already shows feel for an average curveball that he can throw for a strike, while his changeup shows glimpses of becoming an above-average pitch.

De Los Santos floods the zone with strikes and has natural bat-missing ability, and scouts expect him to induce even more whiffs with improved control and command. He's now not far off from being big league ready, with the ingredients to become a middle- to back-of-the-rotation innings-eating starter.


2016

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

Signed at age 18 by the Mariners in July 2014, De Los Santos made the jump stateside for his pro debut last season and finished the year in the Class A Short Season Northwest League. His performance caught the attention of the Padres, who acquired him in November in the Joaquin Benoit trade. He dominated in his full-season debut at Class A Fort Wayne in 2016 and earned a promotion to Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore in early June. 

De Los Santos has already shown rapid improvement since he began his pro career, and there might be plenty more left in the tank. His fastball usually sits between 93-95 mph and has been gunned as high as 97, and he throws it with plenty of life down in the zone, leading to a good amount of groundball outs. He already shows feel for an average curveball that he can throw for a strike, while his changeup shows glimpses of becoming an above-average pitch. 

De Los Santos floods the zone with strikes and has natural bat-missing ability, and scouts expect him to induce even more whiffs with improved control and command. He might be far off from being big league ready, but there's a lot to like in this promising right-hander.


2015

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45

Signed at age 18 by the Mariners in July 2014, De Los Santos made an impressive United States debut in 2015, reaching the short-season Midwest League at age 19. Seattle sent De Los Santos to the Padres in November in the deal for Joaquin Benoit.

De Los Santos has already shown rapid improvement since he began his pro career, and there might be plenty more left in the tank. His fastball will sit in the low 90s, but he can reach back for more velocity at times. He throws it with plenty of life down in the zone, generating a good amount of groundball outs. He has the chance to have at least an average curveball, which he can throw for strikes, and his changeup shows glimpses of being an above-average offspeed pitch. De Los Santos is around the plate and missed plenty of bats during his pro debut and should improve with further refinement of his command.

The right-hander has room to add strength to his 6-foot-3 frame, which could lead to more velocity in the future. He might be far off from being big league ready, but the Padres might have found a steal.
