Domingo Tapia:  I like Tapia… partially because saying “Domingo” is pretty fun but also because he’s got some of the best “STUFF” in the system.   If the man could get away with throwing only fastballs he’d be golden, but that isn’t the case with most players and it’s not likely the case with Tapia. Scouting: At 6’4” 190 Lbs. makes Tapia a suitable size for power and sustainability.  The question isn’t his physical makeup but his pitching makeup. Fastball: He hits 95-96 MPH with regularity and makes that old radar gun say 98 and 99 on occaision.  It’s not impossible to think that it could read out three digits eventually.  The fastball is a 2-Seamer and has some good sink and Tapia is working on a 4-Seam delivery that would add to his versatility. Secondary Pitches: Tapia only REALLY has one.  He throws an 88-90 MPH change that tends to catch too much of the plate. ETA: Tapia is in Port St. Lucie and will hopefully earn a promotion to AA by the end of the year… or at least
