Loyola Marymount rigthander Martin Viramontes is an imposing physical specimen whose results have yet to equal his ability. His power fastball sits at 92-94 mph and often peaks at 95-96, and he adds a curveball and changeup with splitter action. Both of those offerings have potential, but Viramontes throws only about 20 percent of his curves for a strikes. He has never performed at a consistent level, with his career interrupted by an elbow injury in 2009 that forced him to take a medical redshirt after pitching six innings. Viramontes went 4-7, 7.53 this season and gave up 39 extra-base hits (including eight home runs) in 72 innings. Most of his struggles can be traced to mechanical issues. He can't find a consistent arm slot, affecting both the command and velocity of his pitches. He's advised by Boras Corp. and could be a tough sign. Viramontes could easily evolve into a closer, particularly if he solves his command issues.
