Kevin Goldstein shares this on Hector Noesi –
He doesn’t have a ton of stuff, but he sure knows how to pitch. He doesn’t have a pitch that any scout would put a 60 on, but his fastball has average to plus movement with some cutting action, his curveball is solid, his change is good, and he absolutely pounds the strike zone and pitches without fear. After giving up five runs over six innings in his Double-A debut, Noesi’s ERA in 1.17 in seven games, including 44 whiffs and just seven unintentional walks in 46 innings. It’s not a crazy high ceiling, but Noesi sure looks like a major-league starter and could be a nice trade chip in the coming month.
Then again, Noesi had some issues in his past. So, don’t forget about those too when reading this report.
