Fastball – B. For now, Fernadez’s fastball is sitting at 90-91, but from what understand, this pitch is expected to be in the mid-90’s in the next couple years. As a 16 year old, Fernandez sat in the mid to high 80’s. He added 5 mph in the next two years. Heading into his age 19 year old season, his lean 6’4 frame will likely fill out a bit more.
Off-speed Pitches – B. Scouting reports on Fernandez are few a
