PG Grade: 9
Kelvin Maldonado is a 2018 SS/IF with a 6-0 160 lb. frame from Santa Isabel, PR who attends Puerto Rico BB Academy. Nice athletic build, very projectable physically. 6.54 runner, has very solid actions on defense, moves to the ball with light feet and smooth balanced footwork, easy athletic actions, has a quick release and makes accurate throws, played very well on the left side in games and showed better arm strength in games than in drills. Right handed hitter, tall straight stance, hits from a still start with limited lower half use, opposite field oriented swing but did turn on one ball well in games, has hitting tools when he lets the barrel go but tended to get too mechanical in his approach, has the physical tools to continue to improve. Defense and speed will carry him until his bat comes around.
