Prospect of the Day:  RHP Gian Rizzo

Since giving up one earned run in his first start of the season on June 2, 18-year-old Venezuelan Gian Rizzo has not given up an earned run. His latest shutout performance — five innings on Thursday — lowered his season ERA to a ridiculous 0.27.

Statistics in the Dominican Summer League should not taken as representative of overall talent. Still, when a player is dominating the league like Rizzo, it causes one to pause and wonder if the statistics are really representing something more than a 6-foot-1 right-hander with good command, feasting on unpolished teenagers.

I reached out to a contact that speaks with international scouts on a daily basis to pick his brain about Gian Rizzo. Unfortunately, he informed me that not one single scout with whom he has spoken has brought up Rizzo in conversation, which would suggest the Maracalbo, Venezuelan native is not bringing any standout tools to the mound. It was a rather disheartening response to receive.

Or, if you are ever the optimist, perhaps it means the Brewers have a diamond in the rough that has flown under the entire league’s radar and will breakout once he makes it to the states.

    Also, last year Rizzo had an ERA (i know, bad stat) of 1.82 over 64 innings, along with good K and BB numbers. If he is still under the radar after producing two straight seasons, something must be there to cause that….

    How in the world is Khris Davis not getting more pub? His numbers at Huntsville are intriguing. Is he still looking like nothing more than a 4th OF? Seems to be more than that to me.

      He has been older than average at all stops in the minors and that is viewed as a negative, whether deserved or not. There are also concerns that his long swing won’t translate well to the big leagues when the pitchers will have the talent/stuff to find the holes in it. He also projects to only be able to play the corner outfield spots, which hurts a prospects value.

        Those are good points. How many times have we seen a guy like Jake Fox? I guess I’m hoping he gets a shot.

    11 K’s for Wily. He’s restoring my faith in our AAA pitching! Another good start or two from Rodgers and I’ll really start to fell good.
