Scouting Report

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

The Brewers made Medeiros the highest-drafted prep to come out of Hawaii, selecting him 12th overall in 2014 after he blew away the club's front office during a pre-Draft workout at Miller Park. He's continued to impress with his pure stuff in the professional ranks, though the results have been uneven at times. The White Sox decided to gamble on his upside, acquiring him and Dominican right-hander Wilber Perez in exchange for Joakim Soria in July.

Getting away from his low-three quarters arm slot in 2016 cost Medeiros both velocity and life on his fastball. Bigger and stronger in '17, he looked more like his old self and operated at 92-95 mph with heavy life. His slider remains a plus pitch, one capable of inducing whiffs on both sides of the plate with its significant lateral break, and he'll also flash above average with his changeup, which has good sink and fade.

Medeiros' control continues to be below average, but he was markedly better in that regard in '17, issuing a career-best 3.7 walk per nine innings, down from 6.7 the previous year. The jury is still out on whether he can remain a starter long term with his unique arm slot and underwhelming control profile.If he can't, he could have impact potential in a big league bullpen.
