WP - Marcus Valenzuela is a 2006 OF/1B from Monarch HS in Colorado. Marcus has a medium frame with a lean, and lively body. He showed good athletic actions and a solid throwing arm that should be able to play at all outfield positions. Marcus had a solid approach and swing from both sides of the plate. He has a slight lift in his swing and shows good gap to gap power. The ball jumped off the bat with wood and he could be a threat offensively in the future with increased strength and maturity. He's a switch hitter who looks very comfortable on a baseball field. He's going to hit! He has a chance to play and produce at a very high level.

Venezuela is a medium frame 5'10-155 switch hitter who worked out in the outfield and infield and also pitched some. In the outfield he showed good arm strength from right field and could improve by getting on top of his throws more. Venezuela is a switch hitter who is better from the right side but will have to add more strength to handle wood in the future. Off the mound, Venezuela threw 69-72 mph with good command and a pretty decent 60 mph curveball. We’d expect he’d throw harder in non-showcase competition as he threw 78 mph from the outfield. He's only an "06" grad with lots of time to develop and gain strength.
