Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 50 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

The 2015 season looked like a breakout one for Tinoco. Having signed with the Blue Jays in 2011 out of Venezuela, he was making a solid full-season debut in the Midwest League in '15 when he was included in the package of players sent to the Rockies in the Troy Tulowitzki deal at that year's Trade Deadline. Tinoco made a very strong first impression the rest of that season, struggled in 2016, then bounced back in 2017 to earn a spot on the 40-man roster. His move to Double-A in 2018 was up-and-down, though he did participate in the Futures Game.

The Rockies are still very much bullish on Tinoco's stuff and upside. He'll throw his plus fastball up to 97 mph, sitting in the 93-95 mph range and he backs it up with a pair of breaking balls. It's actually at its best when it's between a curve and slider, as he can cast the true curve at times and the slurvy version is a swing-and-miss pitch. He flashes a changeup that's average and his command could be Major League average as well.

Tinoco has improved his delivery, staying much more in control and in line with his follow through, with more leverage over the rubber. It's still unclear what his long-term role is, especially after he looked very comfortable pitching in relief in the Arizona Fall League in 2018. Either way, he's emerging as a piece of the Tulo trade who could help out soon.
