(2/24/12): Florida high school outfielder Albert Almora will present professional scouts with an interesting decision this June. Scouts love to see physical tools, especially on right handed hitting high school outfielders. Almora is a 6.8 runner, average on the Major League scale and short of what one would usually project as a centerfielder’s speed. His raw arm strength would also grade out around a 50; again, major league average for an outfielder. And at 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, Almora isn’t the physical specimen that one picks out right off the bus as the top prospect. But what scouts have come to realize is that Almora might be the best baseball player in the 2012 class in terms of performance and overall skills. Almora’s big league average speed plays up because he gets outstanding jumps to balls in the outfield and is a hyper aggressive baserunner who is always looking to take the extra base and rarely is thrown out. Aside from the jumps and routes he runs in the outfield, his arm strength plays up because he has a very quick release fueled by perfect fundamental footwork and his throws are unfailingly accurate and on-line. The teams that like him the most will be the ones who have seen him play centerfield most frequently and believe he will stay there at the big league level. Almora also has a long resume for performing at top events against top level competition. He hit .455-1-15 on the 2010 USA National 16U team, then followed up by being named the Most Valuable Player (.365-0-13/10 SBs) at the 2011 Pan Am 18U championship won by the USA National 18U team. He blasted home runs in his first two at bats at the 2011 East Coast Professional Showcase and has always been a top level performer at WWBA events while being named a 2011 Perfect Game All-American. There has never been a stage where Almora wasn’t one of the top hitters present. Scouts also know that if they were to pass on Almora out of high school that he’s the type who would dominate college baseball for three years at Miami and likely be a top 10 pick when he re-entered the draft in 2015. It’s a question of pay me now or pay me more later under the new draft system.

Reinaldo Almora is a 2012 OF/C/P with a 5'7'', 115 lb. frame from Hialeah FL, who attends Mater Academy. A switch hitting 5-tool player who projects extremely well. For his age, exhibits an uncanny offensive and defensive feel for the game. Wants to do well and is very coachable. A must follow.
