Col of Central Florida
Weight: 170 lbs
Jeff’s Quick Take: Not much on this kid, similar to some of the picks last year, so I’m not sure what to make of him. He had 7 HRs in 167 ABs and an OBP of .377. He slugged .527
and was caught stealing more times than he was successful. Edit: The Cardinals have corrected me and he stole 14 of 17 bags for an 82% success rate this year. He was voted an all conference player for Central Florida. He was voted Selective Recruiting’s All-Dade First team in High School. All I could find after the jump.
Yoenny Gonzalez: A key member of the Patriots’ core of returning sophomores, Gonzalez appears ready to make a leap in his second season at the college level. A productive hitter as a freshman, the rightfielder became more dangerous with each swing in the just-finished fall campaign. Along with fellow incumbents Christian Coburn and Scott Schaub, Gonzalez gives the Patriots a needed dose of experience and leadership.
