  1. 4. Luis Gil | RHP
    Luis Gil
    Born: Jun 3, 1998 
    Bats: R Throws: R 
    Ht.: 6'3" Wt.: 176 
    Drafted: Dominican Republic, 2014. 
    Signed By: Luis Lajara (Twins). 

    Fastball: 70. Slider: 50. Changeup: 50. Control: 45. 
    Track Record: Gil signed with the Twins for $90,000 in 2014 and was traded to the Yankees for outfielder Jake Cave before the 2018 season. He took off after the trade and rose to high Class A Tampa in 2019, earning a place on the Yankees’ 40-man roster after the season. He spent 2020 at the alternate training site building on previous developmental gains.

    Scouting Report: Gil is a power-armed righthander with an upper-90s fastball. The Yankees worked with him at the alternate site to give the pitch riding life at the top of the zone while weeding out the version that bleeds into two-seam territory, helping it move toward its plus-plus potential. Gil’s slider is a new addition to his arsenal, replacing his curveball, and ranges from 82-88 mph while showing average promise with more development. The Yankees like the movement and shape of Gil’s low-90s changeup, but would like to see him execute the pitch more consistently. To that end, they asked him to shift the way he holds the changeup in an effort to make it more enticing to batters than it currently is. Gil has long struggled with walks and needs a lot of work to reach even average control.

    The Future: Gil gained valuable experience at the alternate training site. He has a chance to reach Double-A in 2021.
