Colton Welker is a 2016 SS/IF with a 6-2 195 lb. frame from Coral Springs, FL who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS. Big and strong athletic build. Looks too big for a middle infielder but has surprising athleticism and mobility and makes plays at both second base and shortstop, agile lower half, 6.99 runner, fields the ball out front and has actions, can charge the ball and maintain balance, very strong arm with carry, if he does move out of the middle of the field he will be a top level defensive third baseman. Right handed hitter, wide base with a early shift to contact, fluid easy swing with good separation and extension, barrels the ball up and hits it hard, more line drive than lift now but the ball carries. Loose and strong athlete who projects. Good student, verbal commitment to Miami.
