Top Prospects #22: Gregory Billo

#22 Gregory Billo

Age: 19
Pos: RHP
HT/WT: 6-4/220
Drafted: 28th Round, Pick #835 of the 2008 Rule IV Draft
High School: Carl Sandburg High School (IL)

Gregory Billo is the opposite of Carlos Fortuna. Billo features a 90 mph fastball (on a good day), and a curveball and changeup that are average pitches. His raw stuff isn't impressive, but after a strong senior season and a decent 2009 I am optimistic that this guy might have something that scouts can't see. In 2009, Billo posted a 3.92 Fip with a .228 batting average against as a member of the Burlington Royals rotation, however, in the bullpen Billo was just dominate posting a 2.14 Fip with a .128 batting average against. Billo isn't a guy that I know much about but I hope that he gets a shot at full season ball this year and can prove himself to be a legitimate prospect.
