Chris Amezquita is a 2008 SS/P with a 6'2'', 190 lb. frame from La Mirada, CA who attends Servite HS. He has a strong and mature big league type body with above average strength, especially for a middle infielder. Amezuita has a top level bat that plays at any position. He has a very quiet and confident approach with a low effort swing and outstanding bat speed. Amezquita's bat stays on plane with the ball a long, long time and he's balanced through contact. He hit the ball hard almost every at bat against some of the top pitching in the country and capped off his offensive performance with a long home run off of an inside fastball. He looks like a pro hitter right now. Defensively, Amezquita has excellent raw arm strength and clean actions at shortstop. The big question for him is going to be whether he has the quickness to remain in the middle of the field. He can for now but may end up at third base, where the transition should be seamless. Amezquita also throws 89-92 mph off the mound with a 73 mph curveball. He has all the tools and skills to be a very high draft pick and top level pro player. Amezquita is a good student who has a verbal commitment to UC Irvine. Selected to 2007 Aflac All-American team.
