Scouting Update: Peter Tago, RHP, Dana Hills (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

May 18, 2010

Pitching in his final regular season home game in a must-win game for his team to quality for the playoffs, Peter Tago came out throwing the ball very well.

He hit 95 in the first few innings again, which has become a routine occurrence for Tago and has helped raise his national level. He will be a first rounder at this stage. Each of his recent starts has drawn a larger crowd of national scouts coming in to cover their behinds and to make sure what their area guys are writing is correct. Well, how about a sequence in the seventh inning.

With two runners on base in a tied game, Tago went with a pair of fastballs at 91. He came back with a 92 fastball to jump ahead in the count and then snapped a 74 curveball for a groundball. Keep in mind, this guy isn’t throwing sliders and change-ups in high school baseball. He’s a two-pitch guy here and has the arm power and stamina to make it work.

The interest in Tago comes partly because his power has increased since last spring and maintained this spring. His body type and wingspan is highly desirable. In fact, Tago has the textbook body you want in the power right-handed types. Some comparisons you might hear on the road would be Ramon Martinez or Ervin Santana. We’ve covered Tago extensively here, so if you’re finding this story on draft day, have fun with the links below. I’ll tell you all you need to know and then some and I’ll do it better than the name brands.
