Anthony Maldonado is a 2009 MIF/3B with a 6'0'', 190 lb. frame from River Forest, IL who attends Oak Park & River Forest HS. Anthony has a strong build and shows excellent arm strength across the diamond. His hands and feet also work well in the IF. At the plate is where Maldonado really stands out. He uses an open stance and has excellent bat speed. He drilled a HR into the left field seats in the game and can drive the ball out of any ballpark. He has big power to the pullside and does not get cheated on any swing. He makes hard barrel contact and will drive any fastball left over the plate. The one tool that he needs to improve is his running speed, he's not a clogger at all, but probably profiles best at 3B at the pro level. He's kind of a smaller version of a young high school age Albert Pujols. His bat will be fun to watch over the next year.
