By: Luis Frontera (12/12/2018)

These notes recognize TOP performers from our November 30, 2018 video workout in Guaynabo PR.

C Uziel Santos (2019 HS Class / Cidra PR)

B/T: R/R

643 Recruiting Profile:

Report:  Stocky Strong with a very good catch & throw profile.  Popped a legit 1.9-2.0 to 2nd base.  Typical catcher arm action.  Room for improvement fundamentally behind the plate which could take him to plus defensive level for an elite college level program.  Made hard contact in BP and showed pop in bat, especially to the pull side where he could eventually flash HR power.   Ran a 7.4/60.  There is more agility and quickness available with physical work & development.  Very interesting defensive+pop profile for a backstop.  Academic Eligibility is for JUCO.

C/3B Evan Fragela (2020 HS Class / Guaynabo PR)

B/T: R/R

643 Recruiting Profile:

Report: Very good size & strength profile for a catcher at 6-1 / 185.  Showed solid fundamentals receiving with consistent pop times of 2.1.  Bat plays really well for a catcher, shows makings of + power to pull side with a lofty swing from a low hand set position.  Interesting athlete, figures to continue to develop and has tools to eventually play every day at the NCAA D1 level and more.  Can also play 3B.  Excellent bloodlines as his mother, Eva Cruz, is perhaps the best female volleyball player to ever come out of Puerto Rico.  Fully Bilingual, good student.

OF Damian Ortiz (2022 HS Class / Guayama PR)

B/T: R/R

643 Recruiting Profile:

Report: Sound defensive actions with a VERY projectable hitting tool. Tall, balanced stance with high hand set and direct path to the ball which allows his barrel to stay in the zone longer and spray hard line drives to the middle of the field.  Should develop straightaway pop as he grows into his athletic, yet strong, frame. Ran a 7.1 / 60 but has run sub-7.0 times before.  A very interesting prospect with room to ++.

INF Giovanni Escobar (2019 HS Class / Loiza PR)

B/T: R/R

643 Recruiting Profile:

Report: Ran a 7.2 / 60 and showed light feet/above average range defensively.  Threw 81MPH from Shortstop with more than adequate arm strength and hands to play the position regularly.  Simple approach offensively starting with bat resting in shoulders and attacking the ball with a modified leg kick.  Figures to develop some gap power with added strength and weight.  Can also pitch.

INF Alexander Lopez (2019 HS Class / Loiza PR)

B/T: R/R

643 Recruiting Profile:

Report:  Ran 7.2 / 60 with playable range & arm at shortstop yet is better suited as a 2b/utility type of player with very good 1st step quickness.  No notable plus tools yet can do several things well and is aided by his versatility.  High hand set offensively with a very abbreviated leg kick.  Could be a very valuable player on a JUCO D2 Program.

RHP Reyson Rivera (2019 HS Class / Cidra PR)

B/T: R/R

Report:  73-77 MPH Fastball with arm side tail.  Curveball & Slider both show good spin despite limited velocity on the fastball.  Very wiry frame still with room to add good weight and tick the FB up to the low 80’s range which will make breaking pitches crisper and with more depth.  Been a successful, effective pitcher at a competitive level.
