Scouting Report

A switch hitter with excellent bloodlines, Valentin is one of the more polished bats in this high school draft class. He's very consistent from both sides of the plate, but showed even more power from the right side of the plate. He shows off booming power to his pull side and his line drives appear to have a second gear. Second base appear to be his position in the future, but we'll need to see a larger sample size of his arm at third base.
