Adrian Cardenas is a 2006 shortstop from Miami Lakes, FL with a strong athletic build at 6-0, 180 lbs. He is an exceptionally smooth defensive player with advanced actions and balance in the field. His pure arm strength is a tick short of ideal but Cardenas has a very quick release and can throw effectively from any arm angle. He'll be able to stay at shortstop to the upper levels of baseball. He is a 6.89 runner in the 60. Cardenas is a right handed hitter with quick hips and a rotation swing. He has a line drive swing plane and good balance, which enables him to make consistent hard contact. He likes to pull the ball with these swing mechanics and has the strength to get the ball up the alley or into the corner, which could develop into home run power down the road. Cardenas is an exceptional student off the field.
