    Pazos has been a key member of San Diego's bullpen since transferring from Chandler-Gilbert (Ariz.) JC after his freshman year, and he was 5-1, 1.53 with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 59 innings this spring. He missed time in the middle of this season serving a suspension for a violation of team rules. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Pazos is physical and aggressive, attacking the zone with an 89-92 mph fastball that bumps 93. His slider has improved significantly in the past year and has a chance to be a second average pitch. He is developing a changeup. Pazos has a resilient arm and has shown the ability to bounce back strong, helping him profile well as a bullpen lefthander.
