2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

As is all-too-common with tall, young pitchers, the 6-foot-7 Paulino has been big on power, but low on the balance scale as a young professional. The combination has worked for his strikeout totals in the minors (10.0 K/9), thanks in large part to a fastball that scrapes triple digits on the radar gun, but his mechanical instability has thus far been insufficient to support a full season's workload, as his 97.0 combined frames from 2016 were easily a career-high through five seasons of pro baseball despite making the start in nearly 80 percent of his games played. The 2016 season was his first above High-A, and the Astros are likely to start Paulino off in the high minors to begin the 2017 campaign, but tall pitchers who throw this hard are given every opportunity to fail, and he could suddenly become a major contributor if consistency and health come together.
