Paterson Segura-RHP stands 6’2″ 175lb born January 1, 1996 and trained by Yovanny “Sabino” Ubiera in San Pedro de Macoris. Segura has arm strength and a feel for 2 solid off speed pitches (Curveball and Change-up) and solid pitch-ability. His velocity ranges from 88-91mph (92mph). His arm action and delivery is a bit unorthodox, he’s a short arm’er with pie throwing arm action and some deception in delivery from a H 3/4 arm slot; Segura pounds the zone with all 3 pitches and keeps hitters off balance.
He took MVP honors during the DPL-POWER SHOWCASE All-Star game with 4 strike outs in 2 Inns, 0-H and 0-ER. The Washington Nationals agree to terms with Segura for $60,000 and should start his professional career in the Dominican Summer League. The contract is pending MLB approval.
Congratulations to the Washington Nationals, Yovanny “Sabino” Ubiera and the Segura family.
