    A short righthander with a whippy-quick arm, Lleras was up into the 93-94 mph range at Puerto Rico’s Excellence tournament this spring, and showed that sort of arm strength last summer at Perfect Game’s National Showcase as well. It’s a tough sell in the top 10 rounds for pro teams though, thanks to his height and a below-average slider that has sweeping shape in the upper 70s. Lleras hasn’t held his velocity deep into games, which is another area of concern. He could improve his stock with a few years at Florida International, where he is committed.
