Yorman Bazardo Report

Yorman Bazardo, RHP, Florida Marlins
Signed as an Undrafted Free Agent, 2000, Venezuela
Bats R/Throws R
20 YO, 6'2", 170 lbs

Bazardo is another kid who gets high marks for his fastball, which regularly sits in the mid 90's. He recorded a 3.27 ERA this season for Jupiter of the Florida State League, and that was the HIGHEST one he's put up as a pro. He also has only given up 80 walks in 390 professional innings. He also doesn't give up home runs (11 given up in those 390 career IP.) Unfortunately, despite the fastball, he doesn't strike out as many hitters as you'd expect. He only struck out 95 hitters this season in 154 1/3 innings while giving up 161 hits. He has the statistical profile of a command and control finesse guy, but the scouting profile of a guy who would strike out twice as many batters. AA will be a nice litmus test for him. I'm at a bit of a loss in predicting what he'll do since he's such a contradiction.

ETA: Late 2006
