Jayden Melendez is a 2021 C/3B with a 5-9 160 lb. frame from Palmetto Bay, FL who attends Westminster Christian. Medium, athletic frame with square shoulders and present strength to frame, additional room to fill and develop physically moving forward. Ran a 7.34 60-yard dash. Primary catcher, lower setup behind the plate with flexibility to actions, receives the ball out front and gains ground with footwork coming out of crouch, quick transfer into a longer arm stroke, clean release and gets on top of throws, good carry to intended base. Righthanded hitter, begins with an upright stance and a high hand set and lower back elbow in the box; utilizes a high leg lift trigger for timing in the box. Linear shift in lower half moving into contact, swings with intent and looks to impact the baseball at point of contact. Full swing path through the zone with a linear stroke, creates torque with lower half and gets some separation out front. Shows fluidity to swing and can work to all fields with barreled contact, strength plays and put it on display in live action with a home run to left field. Excellent student. Named to Junior National Top Prospect List. Verbal commitment to Florida International.
