Simotes is an "06" SS/P from Illinois. At 6'1/160 and just turning 16 he is extremely projectable. He runs fairly well and throws well, he will improve even more in these areas. He has nice hands but needs to work just a bit on his footwork. At the plate he showed a nice swing on a level plane. He made consistent hard contact and showed some bat speed. He doesn't get much body into his swing so he lacks some power with the wood. Overall he is a top "06" who needs to be followed closely. He might end up being a very special player and a good pro prospect. Grant is a good student.
