R.J. Santigate is a 2009 SS 3B/P with a 6'2'', 185 lb. frame from Las Vegas, NV who attends Bishop Gorman HS. He has a lean and athletic build with a really good present day body and more room to fill out. We have seen Santigate play quite well in past events and have felt at various times that he was going to be an impact college player. At this event he was not as physical with the bat as we have seen. He was employing a spray hitting approach and though it was a nice looking swing with hands that work, it was not a very aggressive swing, not for someone with his body type and strength. We still think the power will develop in the coming years. Santigate lets the ball travel and seems to pick up the ball pretty well. He is still a projectable bat for the D1 level. Defensively he showed a loose arm and his throws track well. He will move to 3rd base beyond high school. We have seen more explosiveness from Santigate and it could be that he is in a growth spurt that he is adjusting to. D1 programs should follow him closely. Santigate is also pitching now. He showed good fastball (79-81 mph) and feel of a rolling 67 mph curveball.
