Right-Handed Relief Pitcher

Age: 25
SSHP rank among all right-handed relief pitchers in the system: 9

Vince Arobio pretty much came out of nowhere last year — he wasn’t ranked among our Top 100 Prospects — and had an exciting run for most of the season. The righty started in Winston-Salem (2.68 ERA and 0.805 WHIP in 13 games) and was untouchable at Winston-Salem (no runs, four hits in six games, with 4.33 K/BB). Birmingham, his last stop on the season, slowed him down a bit (5.40 ERA). But he had a composite 3.80 ERA among the three levels, which was enough to earn him a shot at some of the better hitting prospects in Arizona, where he finished his season in the AFL.

Because of his Birmingham hiccup, expect Arobio to return to the Barons and have a shot at Charlotte Knights time by the end of the season.
