Jose De Leon impresses in his debut for the Dodgers (Video)

Jose De Leon, one of the top prospects in the Dodgers system, had an impressive debut in a Dodgers uniform yesterday, striking out four batters in two innings while scattering two hits.

In his appearance, De Leon showcased not only his fastball velocity, but also the deception that makes the pitch so effective. In terms of off-speed offerings, he made a couple hitters look foolish by getting them to wave at his highly-graded changeup, though the breaking ball did show a need for some work in order for De Leon to have three quality pitches.

Also, I made a video of all the swings-and-misses De Leon generated in yesterday’s outing.
