Bacon posted video game numbers out of the bullpen for Santa Fe JC this season. In 40 innings, he posted a 1.35 ERA, striking out 64 and walking 13. Scouts were split on his offspeed stuff, but they all loved his 93-98 mph fastball. Some see his changeup as a future plus pitch, while others envision his his breaking ball developing into an above-average pitch. He could some day throw in the triple digits, and he may get a chance to start as a professional, but he has effort in his delivery and most scouts think he'll ultimately be a reliever.
