Regresa Aaron Gleeman con su Top 40 de prospectos de los Twins, y al llegar a los mejores 5 menciona a nuestro Deolis Guerra como el #2. Está en inglés, pero les dejo lo que escribió:

Signed out of Venezuela for a $700,000 bonus as a 16-year-old in 2005, Deolis Guerra is an example of the Mets hyper-aggressively pushing their top prospects up the organizational ladder. Guerra made his full-season debut shortly after his 17th birthday and started his first game at high Single-A last season before turning 18. He was the lone teenage pitcher in the entire Florida State League and the average hitter he faced was 23 years old, which is why simply holding his own there is very impressive.

Guerra posted a 4.01 ERA and 66-to-25 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 89.2 innings at high Single-A, as the Mets limited his workload and a shoulder injury sidelined him for about a month. Combined with the numbers from his 2006 debut, Guerra now has a 3.27 ERA, 135-to-65 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and .228 opponent's batting average in 178.2 pro innings, which is amazing for someone who's faced advanced competition at such a young age and why the Twins targeted him in the Johan Santana trade.

Guerra's velocity has reportedly been inconsistent, but he's been clocked in the mid-90s at times and as a stocky, 6-foot-5 right-hander who won't be old enough to drink legally until mid-2010 there's plenty of room to project a big-time fastball. Better yet, Guerra's changeup is said to be his best pitch, which is another area where he's miles ahead of other teenage hurlers. The Twins will no doubt slow down his development considerably, but Guerra has as much upside as anyone in the system.
