May be the biggest surprise in Ft Myers this year. We had heard good things about a young Latin shortstop who was at Brito high school in Miami. In this case, it was all very true. Gonzalez is an excellent prospect with serious tools and a great strong baseball body. He's a plus runner, we would guess he's run 6.7s at least. He has a nice arm and big time shortstop actions. He has good instincts and a very good feel for the game. And his best tool is his bat! Excellent bat speed from both sides of the plate. Big time power potential in a nice quick swing. He hit one out during the game and hit some hard line drives up the middle. We would like to see more of this kid. He looked like a future Big Leaguer in Ft Myers. Scouts need to follow him closely. If he shows as good this Spring he could be a surprise early pick. We saw no weaknesses in his game and lots of pluses. Remember his name!
