Long touted as one of the top prospects in the class thanks to his early velocity and ability to spin the ball, Espino is an explosive athlete with likely the best now stuff of any pitcher in the prep class. The 6’4” righty has a unique delivery with big movements, but has the athleticism to repeat it consistently, and does. Espino employs a big leg kick and generates a ton of leg drive, and has long, but not violent, arm action.
