Scouting Report / Bio: Altered his pitching motion in 2006, reverting back to the conventional Asian pitching style of leaning on his back leg he had used earlier in his career. After a mediocre season in the California League, Lo made considerable strides with Waikiki over the winter. Working with pitching coach Butch Hughes, Lo showed improved velocity and confidence. He also reintroduced his cutter as a reliable secondary pitch. He typically works in he 88-91 mph range and also features a straight changeup and looping slider.
Future Outlook: Very intriguing. Could develop into a back-of-the-rotation starter one day.
