Showcase Caribbean Top Prospect Showcase
Nov 18 - 20, 2016 Hiram Bithorn Stadium - San Juan, PR  

2017 Top Prospects

Ricardo De La Torre  - SS - 2017 - Juana Diaz, PR - USA
A PG All-American and the 49th ranked player in the 2017 class, De La Torre has all the physical tools to be a high pick next June both on offense and defense.

Santis Sanchez  - C - 2017 - Las Piedras, PR - USA
Sanchez was the surprise prospect of the showcase and a definite potential pro draft next June. He has elite level arm strength and defensive skills behind the plate and lots of bat speed and raw pop in his bat.

Jose Marcano  - SS - 2017 - Humacao, PR - USA
Marcano came into the event as the 227th ranked player in the 2017 class rankings and showed potential pro level tools in all areas of the game. He's a 6.6 runner who threw 93 mph in drills and has lots of right handed bat speed.

Ian Matos  - OF - 2017 - Toa Alta, PR - USA
Matos was outstanding offensively in the games, with hard and loud contact almost every time up. That didn't obscure the fact that he's also a 6.5 runner with a ton of outfield arm strength.

Yashviel Estrada  - RHP - 2017 - Caguas, PR - USA
Estrada was the best pitching prospect at the event and has a bright future if he can get stronger. He didn't throw a fastball under 87 mph for four innings, topping out at 89, and showed good feel for his curveball and change up.

Carlos Diaz  - OF - 2017 - Caguas, PR - USA
Diaz can absolutely fly, as his 6.31 sixty indicates. He also has the type of loose projectable build and strong arm that would tempt coaches in the States to make sure he got a turn on the mound.

Nelson Hopkins Medina  - C - 2017 - Toa Baja, PR - USA
Medina is a very good all around athlete with quickness and developing strength. He stood out defensively behind the plate but also has a polished and sound hitting approach.

Osvaldo Berrios Flores  - RHP - 2017 - Juncos, PR - USA
Flores has a strong and very projectable 6-2/200 build and a very long and loose arm action on the mound. He topped out at 89 mph and impressed with his ability to throw his fastball for strikes.

Angel Gonzalez  - OF - 2017 - Aguirre, PR - USA
Gonzalez looks the part of the prospect with a very projectable 6-2/170 build and has outstanding run and throw tools, with a 6.6 sixty and big 92 mph arm strength from the outfield.

Jose Yadiel Martinez  - OF - 2017 - Aguas Buenas, PR - USA
Martinez has outstanding run and throw tools, with a 6.43 sixty to his credit and 91 mph outfield arm strength. He's going to have to add some strength to his 150 pound frame to improve as a hitter.

Jean Barreto  - OF - 2017 - Caguas, PR - USA
Barreto swung the bat very well in games and has an aggressive high contact approach at the plate. He also ran a 6.7 and threw 93 from the outfield.

Shawn Ross  - 3B - 2017 - Fajardo, PR - USA
Ross has more strength than his listed 6-0/180 build indicates and flashed big bat speed and power at the plate. He also has all the tools you'd want to see in a third baseman defensively, including a plus arm and quick soft hands.

Joab Gonzalez  - SS - 2017 - Arecibo, PR - USA
Gonzalez needs to get stronger to take advantage of his barrel to ball skills at the plate but his athleticism and defense is top notch.

Alexander Castro  - RHP - 2017 - Luquillo, PR - USA
Castro has a young middle infielder's build physically and a loose and whippy arm that produced a live fastball that topped out at 88 mph. He threw two different types of breaking ball and developed better feel for them the more he used them.

Kenneth J Gonzalez  - C - 2017 - Arecibo, PR - USA
Gonzalez is very polished defensively behind the plate, as most Puerto Rican catcher's are, and has the athleticism to back up the skills.

William Jeffry  - OF - 2017 - Caguas, PR - USA
It may take Jeffry a bit longer to develop the strength to drive the ball than many of his peers but his 6.5 speed and loose and strong arm stand out.

John Louis Rodriguez Perez  - SS - 2017 - Caguas, PR - USA
Rodriguez Perez has a very nice right handed swing that will keep improving as he add strength. He also has a long and loose arm in the infield with 90 mph arm strength across the diamond.

Yadiel Flores  - RHP - 2017 - Yabucoa, PR - USA
Flores has a young and very slender 6-2/160 build but a long and loose arm that produced a mid-80's fastball and upper 70's slider, both of which should continue to pick up velocity.

Andre F Colon  - SS - 2017 - Coamo, PR - USA
Colon has a nice projectable 6-1/175 build and lots of athletic tools, including very good arm strength and 6.70 speed.

Bryan Lopez  - OF - 2017 - Cidra, PR - USA
Lopez was one of the best hitters at the showcase, with a quick and short left handed swing that produced consistent line drive contact both in BP and in the games.
