PG Grade: 6.5
Cantu is a 6-0, 160 lb right handed hitting senior first baseman from Texas with some upper body strength. He's a 7.99 runner with 78 mph arm strength who also pitched a bit. Cantu handled himself around the bag well and had soft hands. At the plate, Cantu has very good hand/eye coordination at the plate and uses his hands very well to make solid contact. He keeps his swing short and crisp to the ball. Cantu had a couple of sharp hits and a few more sharp outs during the games and seemed to center everything. He projects some gap to gap power as he matures physically. As a pitcher, Cantu threw 74 mph with a long arm action. He is a good student.
