    Luzardo appeared to be on his way to pitching himself into the first round this spring. But that early-season momentum was halted when he suffered an injury and required Tommy John surgery in March. Luzardo first stood out for his pitchability and offspeed stuff. But before his injury this spring, he showed improved velocity, running his fastball up to 97 mph. He more typically threw the pitch in the low 90s with good sinking action. He has a good feel for his changeup, which projects as a plus pitch, and can show multiple looks with his breaking ball. Luzardo commands his full arsenal well, and has an advanced understanding of hi scraft. He is committed to Miami, though he could be in play as high as the second round.
