The question isn’t if Gaston can pitch. It’s whether he will be a starter or pitch out of the bullpen one day. The most skeptical scouts wonder if he will throw enough strikes. Here’s why: Gaston is an especially hard thrower. His fastball has been clocked as 97 mph and it’s not uncommon for him to sit at 94-95. That type of velocity is rare in any market and not surprisingly, some scouts wonder if he will be able to command the high velocity on a consistent basis. But his skill is extraordinary, and Gaston is the type of pitcher any club would like to put it in its system. In terms of secondary pitches, the belief is that those will develop once he signs with a team and receives daily instruction in an academy. Gaston gave up one hit, struck out a batter and walked one at MLB’s International Prospect Showcase in February. He didn’t show his best fastball or command. The right-handed pitcher is from Matanzas, Cuba, and trains with Yuan Pino. – MLB Pipeline
