The Outfield Fly Ruling

Most likely an organizational lefty, Caicedo has some swingman ability and does a good job avoiding free passes, mostly because his pitches are awfully hittable. Any future must include an ability to induce weak contact. (-B. Blackwell, 2017)

OFR Articles About Caicedo

The OFR Scouting Report

Pitch Arsenal:

Stamina – 40

Caicedo is already living the swingman’s life, with enough stamina to pick up a handful of starts per year, but more activity in the bullpen.

Walk Avoidance – 40 ↑

Caicedo has been particularly stingy with walks, but projections suggest it might be level-related. Either way, it doesn’t appear to be a major issue for him, and he should be near league-average in this regard.

Strikeout Ability – 25 ↑↑

Caicedo doesn’t miss many bats, and isn’t really ever projected to.

Groundball Induction40

20-80 scale, where 20 will prevent you from reaching the bigs, 30 is terrible, 40 is below average, 50 is MLB average, 60 is plus, 70 is plus-plus, and 80 is HOF-level. The OFR Scouting Report is based mostly on statistical forecasting models such as ZiPs, PECOTA, etc. Arrows indicate projected room for growth or decline, with each representing a 5 point movement on the 20-80 scale.
