Just flipped cards and bought Jesus Luzardo because I wanted a lefty that throws some heat. I've never faced him in RS has anyone had success with him?? Opinions?? Thanks!
Faced him once and he was nasty
Quick delivery and ball gets on you fast so i find his fastball really plays up, especially if you mix his offspeed stuff in. My only knock on him was stamina and control, around 40-50 pitches in his breaking stuff starts to fly all over but his fastball changeup mix keeps him alive. Hes great for the event tho.
Ive had much better success with vida blue as a high velo lefty. They cost pretty similar but blue has way better stamina and control plus he has a 20 mph gap in his fb changeup mix and close to 30 mph gap with fb curveball which plays nasty.
