WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Nunez is a tall, athletic pitcher who’s very projectable if he gets stronger.  He currently throws in the upper 80s with loose arm action that gives him a chance to add velocity.  His best pitch is his curveball, which he throws in the 76-78 MPH range. Baseball America rated him the 9th best prospect in Louisiana in a down year for the state.  He ranked 88th in Baseball America’s top 100 players prior to the 2011 season. He has a commitment to Southern Mississippi.
