Drafted in the 3rd round (69th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1995.
View Draft ReportUpstate high school talent that could go in the third round includes Arroyo, a recently converted shortstop who has the makings of an above-average fastball and curve.
Background: In Arroyo's second season in Double-A, he tied for the Eastern League lead in victories. He has been a winner throughout his professional career, compiling a 49-28 record in five minor league seasons. Strengths: Tall and lanky with a loose arm action, Arroyo has a good frame for a pitcher. He has a fastball, curveball, slider and changeup that are all above-average. He will throw any of his pitches at any point in the count. Arroyo helps himself by being a good hitter, bunter and fielder. Weaknesses: Arroyo is still a little on the thin side. He needs to fill out his body, partially through maturing and partially through hitting the weights harder. While he has four good pitches, none are exceptional or considered an out pitch. The Future: Arroyo got roughed up in his first taste of Triple-A, but he will go back to Nashville in 2000. He is a solid prospect who should eventually fit nicely in the middle of a major league rotation.
