Corey Ventura is a 2006 MIF from Palm Desert HS, residing in Rancho Mirage, CA, with a 5'7", 165 lb. frame. He has a compact and athletic build. Ventura plays with excellent energy and is simply a solid baseball player that plays a winning type of game in all phases. He has excellent defensive actions and a good defensive set-up to the ball. He takes very good angles to the ball and has a good first step. It is apparent when watching Ventura that he likes to play defense. He has quick hands and a very good exchange, resulting in a plus ability to turn the double play. His throwing motion is also a plus in the infield. It is a peg type arm stroke which allows for a quick release. Offensively Ventura hits from a square stance and possesses a short swing with balance and a good opposite field approach. Generally, he is willing to take what is the pitcher is giving, whether that is a base knock through the four hole or spinning on a mistake. He is a good contact hitter and will make a solid two-hole type at the college level, so long as he continues to understand who he is in the game. Ventura understands the two strike approach and is a good situational hitter. He is a good student and should be followed closely by programs that have a need for a second baseman. If he gets a chance, Ventura will find his way into the line-up sooner or later.
