Inoa, a 6-foot-7, 200-pound righty, creates easy velocity through relatively sound mechanics. At the workout, Inoa consistently sat at 91-92 mph with his fastball, topping out at 94. He also throws a softer breaking ball which was inconsistent at times, and will also show a splitter. Inoa turns 17 in September.
A scouting director told ESPN's Jayson Stark this week the Yankees and Mariners are already sending signals they're prepared to bid $3 million-$4 million for 16-year-old Michel Inoa.
Inoa, a right-handed pitcher from the Dominican Republic, will be available once the international signing period begins on July 2. The scouting director went on to tell Stark that he wouldn't be surprised if the eventual price tag reaches $6 million.
