Arizona Diamondbacks pitching prospect Yu-Min Lin, now 19, signed with the club out of Taiwan in December 2021. He wasted no time transitioning to baseball in America, quickly emerging as one of the top prospects in Arizona's system. When facing batters, Lin sets the tone with a low-90s fastball. However, he really leaves his mark with his breaking and offspeed offerings. Lin's curveball has fantastic vertical bite, and the horizontal break on his slider is equally impressive. He also harnesses his changeup with ease, getting great fade and just enough arm-side movement to miss bats. If that wasn't enough, MLB Pipeline reports that he also deploys a "splitter and screwball-like pitch to keep hitters guessing." This past week, Lin had one of pro baseball's best outings in recent memory. He lasted five innings, striking out a whopping 13 batters. That would be impressive for a nine-inning game, but it's all the more impressive when you consider he faced just 17 batters and recorded 15 outs. His final stat line included just one walk, one hit, zero runs, and the no-decision. Lin has emerged as one of the best strikeout throwers in Minor League Baseball as a teenager. Just imagine the impact he could have in a few short years. Don't be surprised if the lanky left-hander is a hot fantasy commodity in the future.
