Scouting Report

Pelio is Rancho Bernardo High's latest attractive draft prospect--a 6-foot-4, 220-pound righthander with a solid track record against good competition. Pelio is more of a project than his former high school teammates Calvin Mitchell and Drew Finley, who were both top-100 picks. Pelio sits 89-90 mph with his fastball and can reach 92-93, although he tends to drop to 86-88 mph by the middle innings. His curveball is extremely inconsistent and he shows a promising changeup with late fade but rarely uses it. Pelio throws strikes but doesn't have a great handle on his command yet. He will also need to be stringent about his conditioning as a big-bodied teen. Scouts like Pelio's long-term promise, but they largely don't see enough present stuff to give him the big bonus he's likely to command. He is strongly committed to Boston College.
