Is Pittsburgh Pirates Teen Luis Heredia For Real?


Luis Heredia is going to be a star.  The really interesting part of his outing last night? He threw 68 pitches.  Can you take a wild guess how many times he threw his lock em up curveball?

Heredia only threw one curveball all night.

Yeh, one.

Even when Luis Heredia is confined to focusing on his fastball and changeup, he can be good enough to get a victory. The Bucco teenager notched his first win of the 2012 season last night pitching in front of his Mother and family.  He gave up one earned run over five innings.

Heredia now has a 1.13 ERA while pitching 24 innings for the State College Spikes. The Bucco right-hander didn’t record a strikeout last night and walked three batters in firing 38 of his 62 pitches for strikes.

Un. Real.

Sort of like his prescence in this video from Pirates Prospects. who have done a tremendous job of covering the team this season.

Speaking of the Spikes, they are having an interesting bobblehead giveaway tonight….
