Scouting Report

The son of Bobby Bonilla, who played 16 big league seasons and still is getting paid $1 million annually by the Mets, Brandon Bonilla has some of his father's size at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds. He has power on the mound instead of on the plate, with a fastball that has reached 97 mph. He's earned comparisons to Donald Veal and Dontrelle Willis for his high-effort, high-leg kick delivery, and command is not a strong suit. Neither is experience. The Connecticut native, who attended Florida's IMG Academy for his final two years of high school, threw 36 innings in his first two college seasons between Arizona State and Grand Canyon, due in part to a stress fracture in his left elbow. He was ineligible this season, limited to scrimmages and bullpen sessions for scouts. He struck out 30 in 19 innings in the New England Collegiate League last summer but walked 13 and posted an 8.37 ERA. Lefties with velocity, though, remain coveted, making Bonilla a significant wild card for Four Corners area scouts.
