2.5.17 (PBR Super 60) - Seminole State JC recruit. 6-foot, 175-pound right-handed pitcher, wiry-thin build, high-level quick-twitch athlete. Flashed raw, high-ceiling potential during his Super 60 bullpen. Easy, athletic, low-effort delivery; looked as though playing a nonchalant game of catch. Arm slot varies between sidearm to lower-3/4 depending on the pitch. Fluid, ultra-quick arm at foot strike, long draw on the backside. Worked his fastball mainly at 87-89 mph from a sidearm slot; but when told to finish up the pen with two fastballs, he popped 93 and 92, respectively. Threw fastball for consistent strikes with late arm-side run. Slider ranged between 71-76 mph, lower-3/4 slot, inconsistent shape, sweeping action, erratic around the zone. Changeup ranged between 69-71, uncertain what exactly it was, erratic shape but a few had knuckle-ish action to it. In all, with more polish and physical development, Cortijo could develop into a high-level pitching prospect down the road.

6.30.16 - Cortijo was one of the surprises of the MSABC Futures Game.  The 6-foot, 170-pound outfielder showed off his arm strength from the outfield showing life and carry on a throw to the plate. Things got interesting when he stepped onto the mound in the final inning of the game.  An athletic arm and fluid delivery created much intrigue to go along with his 87-89 mph fastball that maxed out at 91mph. Cortijo recently moved to Maryland in the late fall/early winter of 2015 from Puerto Rico.
