RHP Ruddy Lugo has one of the more intriguing arms in the draft, but scouts are unsure what to make of him. There's concern that he's too small (5-foot-10, 190 pounds) to be a legitimate first-round pick. And there's a faction that can't decide whether he's more of a pitcher or an everyday player. Most see him as a pitcher because he has outstanding velocity (93-94 mph). But he doesn't pitch on a downward plane, his fastball is straight and his other pitches are inconsistent, though he shows a plus slider at times. He dominated against local competition but was knocked around a bit when his team played in the National Classic high school tournament in California in April, and there's concern he won't stand out in pro ball. As a shortstop, he swings the bat well and has good natural actions and a strong arm in the field.
