Scouting Report

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

In many ways, Kilome has done as well as, or better than, could have been expected when he signed as a gangly teenager back in 2013. He's gotten bigger and stronger and, after making his full-season debut in 2016, has moved rather quickly, reaching Double-A in '17 while finishing in the top 10 among all Phillies pitching prospects in ERA. He was spending his first full season at the level when he was dealt to the Mets for Asdrubal Cabrera. The Mets won't get a long look at him until 2020, however, as the right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in October and will miss the 2019 season.

Pure stuff-wise, Kilome is as good as just about any pitching prospect in the system, with a fastball that sits in the mid-90s combined with a curve that often flashes plus. His changeup has improved, and it could eventually become an average third pitch, something softer to disrupt hitters' timing. He's generally around the strike zone, though his command has been inconsistent as he is still learning to get all of his 6-foot-6 frame in sync on a regular basis.

Kilome doesn't miss as many bats as his stuff suggests he should, though he stands to improve in that department as he learns to sequence pitches and set up hitters more effectively. Kilome gets high marks for his makeup and intelligence, as he learned English quickly so he could better communicate with teammates and coaches. He should continue his development as a starter when he returns in 2020, though there's a non-zero chance that Kilome, with his fastball-curveball combo, will end up in the bullpen.
