”Lara’s repertoire also features a power breaking ball,” they add, along with a changeup that, as with most young prospects, is on the come. ” This teen knows how to attack hitters,” according to the team’s scouting report, ” and has shown good command of his pitches, and like most pitchers his age, Lara’s control will improve as he develops and receives more instruction. There’s more deception in his delivery and there’s lots of aggressiveness in his approach, according to the team scouting report”.
