Raidel Orta (RHP). Industrial 18 years 1.75m / 70kg
Orta is a natural starter with great projection in Cuban baseball. His walk rate is normal for an 18 years old pitcher. However, his slider is mature and consistent and his fastball reaches 90 mph. Perhaps there is no an 18 years old pitcher RHP with the talent of Orta in Cuba.
Per AZ Phil, Orta is veteran of Serie Nacional (the Cuban major league) who defected from Cuba two years ago and hasn't pitched competitively since. At least when he was 18, he was pretty darn small. 1.75m and 70kg converts to 5'9" and 154 lbs. Not pitching competitively for so long, being 22 already (just turned) and getting only $10,000 for a signing bonus isn't very exciting so there's no reason to have much expectation here, but the Cubs are nothing if not thorough and they must've seen something in him.
