Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 50 | Curveball: 55 | Slider: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 40 | Overall: 45

Signed out of Venezuela in February 2011, Lugo spent two years in the Rookie leagues before getting his first taste of full-season ball. While he hasn't come along particularly fast, the big left-hander did make developmental strides during his back-to-back campaigns with Class A Advanced Lynchburg, and he's built on that success in 2017 with a move up to Double-A.

Lugo has grown into 6-foot-5, 200-pound frame since signing, and some scouts believe he still has remaining physical projection. His fastball sits around 90 mph, and he'll flash above average with his curveball while also mixing in a slider and changeup. Though he has feel for sequencing, Lugo struggles to get ahead in counts and doesn't consistently throw strikes, which has led to perennially high walk totals and short outings for the southpaw.

Lugo has been incredibly durable as a professional, logging at least 125 innings in each of his first three years in full-season ball, and he's on pace to blow well past that total in 2017. With his size and stuff, Lugo has the makings of a back-end starter or long reliever capable of eating innings in the big leagues.
