2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: The Twins signed Landa out of Venezuela in September of 2010. He posted a 3.38 ERA in 32 innings in the DSL in 2011. He walked 31, but he struck out 26. He came to the States in 2012. In the GCL, he posted a 2.43 ERA in 33.1 innings. He struck out 27, but he still walked 20. He moved up to Elizabethton in 2013. He posted a 2.78 ERA in 55.1 innings despite walking 29. He struck out 46. In 2014, he pitched just 25 innings (13 games) in Cedar Rapids before shoulder issues curtailed his season. Landa is just 6-0 tall and a stocky 200 pounds. He throws really hard, often hitting 98 in Cedar Rapids in 2015. He also has a slider, curveball and changeup though as you can see from the numbers, control of them can be an issue.
