Joshua Almonte is a 2012 OF with a 6-3 195 lb. frame from Corona, NY who attends Long Island City HS. Long lean athletic build, still has some room to fill but already has present strength. Highly impressive defensive workout, event best 94 mph velocity from the outfield, also posted a good time of 6.58 seconds in the 60 yard dash. Moves well defensively, footwork was a bit choppy and short, max effort throws but accurate anyway. Good body control through fielding and throwing motion allows him to make strong accurate throws in spite of inefficient violent mechanics, could improve off an already impressive showing. Made strong impression at the plate in game action after getting drilled with a 92 mph fastball in the ribs he stepped right back in and ripped a line drive double to the opposite field. Strong pull tendency in BP, had HR derby approach but made adjustment during games. Flashes home run power with quick hands and strong wrists, wrists are a little stiff and could get more from lower half. Potential for at least above average power. Somewhat raw mechanically at present but has high level raw tools with a chance to develop, high upside prospect from a cold weather climate. Signed with Miami-Dade College.
