Scouting Report

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

In a perfect world, every trade acquisition takes a step forward in development following the trade. That's what's happened with Madero, who originally signed with the D-backs in October 2013 for $160,000. The right-hander joined the Angels organization via the 2017 Trade Deadline deal for David Hernandez. In his first full year with the Angels, the Venezuelan hurler was a Midwest League All-Star, earned a promotion up to the California League, performed very well there and earned a spot on the 40-man roster.

The 6-foot-3 right-hander saw his stuff tick upwards in 2018 and the results followed suit. His fastball is trending up, and he was sitting low-90s last year, touching 94 mph, throwing the pitch with sink to get ground-ball outs. He gets swings and misses with it and his above-average slider also misses bats, with the sharpening of his stuff leading to a higher strikeout rate. His changeup is developing and is behind the other two offerings.

Madero has always been a good strike-thrower, and he didn't lose that with the uptick in his stuff. The next step will be command within the zone so he doesn't get hit as much as he has, but even that was trending in the right direction. He could have a chance to start, but that fastball-slider combination could play well coming out of the bullpen.
