TRACK RECORD: Carrillo was a slight righthander with a quick arm when the Dodgers purchased his rights from the Mexican League''s Tijuana franchise in 2016. He grew three inches and added 25 pounds after signing and saw a huge uptick in velocity, but also struggled to harness his newfound power. Carrillo spent 2020 at the alternate training site and instructional league and showed enough progress that the Dodgers added him to their 40-man roster after the season.

SCOUTING REPORT: Carrillo''s stuff is undeniable. His sinker sits 94-97 mph with nearly 16 inches of run and his short, 89-91 mph slider is a swing-and-miss pitch that moves in the opposite direction. He generates his power stuff with remarkable ease and holds his velocity deep into his outings. He also flashes an average changeup with late drop and mixes in a below-average, slurvy curveball. Carrillo''s issue is his well below-average control. He often throws strikes one inning and can''t find the plate the next. He''s still learning to control the tempo of his delivery and be on time with his arm.

THE FUTURE: Carrillo doesn''t throw enough strikes to start, but he has the stuff to be power reliever if he can keep the ball over the plate. He''ll see Double-A in 2021.

Gerardo Carrillo, RHP
Age: 22

Carrillo was the Dodgers No. 22 prospect in their midseason rankings. He is an undersized rigthander with a huge arm but very little control. He went 3-2, 4.25 in 15 appearances (14 starts) with Double-A Tulsa this year. He had 70 strikeouts in 59.1 innings, but also 29 walks and 16 hit batters. Carrillo generates huge run and sink on his 94-97 mph fastball and can reach 99. His short, 89-91 mph slider is another swing-and-miss pitch that moves in the opposite direction and he’ll flash an average changeup. Carrillo generates his velocity with remarkable ease for his size, but often has no idea where the ball is going from one pitch to the next. He’s completed five innings only three times in 14 starts this year and has a habit of looking great for one inning and falling apart the next. Carrillo doesn’t have the control to start, but his power stuff should play even better in one-inning stints. If he shows he can throw strikes more consistently in one-inning bursts, he has a chance to be a high-leverage reliever.

Assigned to Harrisburg, but can't find that he has pitched there yet. (Harrisburg roster lists only stats from LAD's Tulsa team)

Mid-5th in Harrisburg. Gerardo Carrillo has thrown 83 pitches (48 strikes). 2 runs (both earned) on a 1st inning homer. 6 hits, 2 BB. 2 Ks. 7 groundouts, 2 flyouts.
Looks pretty good. A little erratic, but that's to be expected at that level. Will be interesting to see if he remains a starter or shifts to a Paolo type role as a 6th starter/bullpen guy.

Donovan Casey continues to rake.  He's 1-2 with an RBI.
