Scouting Report: Doubled the record for a signing bonus given to a Venezuelan, set by Francisco Rodriguez in 1992. Espinoza is slight of frame, but he still sits in the low-90s with his fastball, topping out at 94 mph. He reaches that velocity with clean mechanics and a repeatable delivery, generating plus arm speed with loose arm action. He may even continue to gain velocity as he fills out some. He is not just a raw arm either, as he shows great pitchability for his age and features two good offspeed pitches. His curveball is a potential plus pitch, with tight spin and sharp bite at 71-73 mph. He also throws a changeup with some sink and shows good feel for the pitch.
