Weston Gilmer is a 2007 switch-hitting shortstop from Pinson Valley HS, residing in Pinson, AL. He has a strong, stout build on his 6'0" 195 lb. frame. Gilmer has a nice all-around skill set and likely is getting a lot of attention from D1 programs, particularly as a talented switch-hitting middle infielder. From the left side he hits with a slightly open stance. His hands make a bit of an inside out path and he has a flat swing plane and good bat speed. Gilmer has some present day power from the left side and will continue to develop more, which will play from gap to gap. From the right side he showed a quick bat and stayed inside the ball well. There was some down angle in his swing plane, which can create backspin at contact and some resulting carry type power. He seemed more aggressive from the right side than the left. In the field Gilmer showed that he has good hands and that his feet work well. He was quick with the double play turn and has an above average arm. Range may be an issue for some to allow him to stay at shortstop, but all of his other abilities are solid for the position. It is also conceivable that his bat will play at 3rd base. He is a good middle infielder though and should be given the opportunity to play his way out of the middle before someone makes that decision for him. Gilmer ran 4.52 home/1st with a 7.35 60 yard time. Gilmer is a solid D1 prospect that should be able to contribute pretty quickly. It would seem now that he has a future in pro ball, after his college career.
