📖 | NAME: Jesús Luzardo
⚾️ | POSITION: LHP
💪 | HT/WT: 6’ 0” / 205 lbs.
👴 | AGE: 21 years, 17 days
💼 | DRAFTED: 17th pick of the 2016 3rd round by WAS. 94th overall. Acquired in 2017 from Washington via trade
📉 | STATS: Threw 23 games between A+, AA, and AAA (101.1 IP) in 2018. Averaged double digit K/9 at every level but AA (9.84) of this past year. At AA in the 2018 season (78.2 IP), allowed 20 ER with a 2.29 ERA, 3.19 xFIP, and a 45.5 GB%. 📗 | ANALYSIS: Jesús was acquired for Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madison at the deadline 2 seasons ago. He has risen through the minor leagues fast, and saw some starts at AAA at the end of last season. The velocity is definitely there, as he can already reach the upper 90’s. I’m super exited about him as an A, and think that we totally finessed the Nationals for him. He’ll be “In the mix” in AZ this spring training. His strikeout and groundball numbers are great, so I think that the future is bright for Luzardo. He’s part of a young minor league core the A’s have that can definitely do some damage come 2019-2020. I expect to see him up by summer of this upcoming season.
