Prospect of the Day:  RHP Jorge Lopez (Class-A Wisconsin)

Lots of hype surrounded right-hander Jorge Lopez when the Brewers selected him in the second round of the 2011 MLB Draft. He was a projectable 6-foot-4 prep pitcher with a fastball that touched in the mid-90s with a hammer curve. Unfortunately, the development has been painstakingly slow thus far. He spent much of last season with the Dominican Summer League and had an 11.64 ERA heading into his start on Thursday evening.

I’ve been told that Jorge Lopez still pitches like a high school prospect. When he’s on, he possesses the arsenal to shut down opposing batters, but when he’s struggling, he’s missing in the middle of the plate and getting hammered. On Thursday, Lopez brought his good stuff to the mound and threw six scoreless (and hitless) innings. He walked five batters, but that’s almost irrelevant given his past struggles. It was wonderful to see the right-hander sustain success for an entire start.

Plenty of projection remains for Lopez. He still could develop into a mid-rotation starter for the Brewers. It’s just very unlikely that he reaches that ceiling due to his current lack of refinement, and it’s also difficult to see that projection because that potential ceiling is years away.
