One of my favorite selections of the Jerry Dipoto era, Damon Casetta-Stubbs is a 19-year-old righty with nice potential and a solid floor. He has a sturdy build, standing a 6’4″, 225 lbs. The Vancouver Washington native split most of his season between West Virginia and Everett and battled through his first full season of pro ball.
Casetta-Stubbs sits comfortably between 88-91, but has hit 94 MPH in games, and reached 97 MPH inside work. He has two average breaking balls that both flash above-average, as well as a changeup that has flashed enough to give him a good chance at 4 pitches.
Casetta-Stubbs has solid command and is a good athlete with a nice delivery. The combination of stuff and command at the age of 19 isn’t something you see often. We are big fans of DCS on the website and are expecting big things from him in the coming years.
He will likely start the year back in West Virginia and have an opportunity to jump to the California League for Modesto by the end of 2020.
