Scouting Report
: Tall and lanky righty, switched to sidearm delivery  in spring 2007. Fastball sits around 84-87 mph with excellent sinking movement. Changeup doesn't have a lot of separation, sitting around 79-81 mph. Also mixes in a nice frisbee slider that sits between 71-75 mph, which can get slurvey at times. Solid pitchability - knows how to works his pitches against lefties and righties. Has improved his success against lefties over time, an area where he had struggled in the past.  Likes to work quickly, and throws a lot of strikes.  Induces a lot of ground-outs. Good mound presence. Very personable. The organization loves Vaquedano's stuff, further demonstrated by the fact that he's hung around the system for eight seasons.
