Draft Spotlight: C Kameron Guangorena

Steve Doherty
SoCal Area Scout

Kameron Guangorena, formerly Ojeda, has been on every college and professional evaluator's radar for the past 4 years, and for good reason. He has continued to impress, develop, and grow into arguably one of the top catching prospects in the country, and unquestionably the State of California. Presently ranked 66th on PBR's HS Draft 100 list, and 132nd overall on PBR's Draft Board, Guangorena, a USA Baseball product and Cal State Fullerton commit shows a hit first profile, with a polished, natural left handed swing.

With 120 career varsity games under his belt at St. John Bosco, Ca., and 382 at-bats, Guangorena has posted an impressive .340 BA, with 130 hits, 70 runs scored, 27 doubles, 11 HR's, 75 RBI's and 200 total bases. Let me remind you that he has done this in Southern California's Trinity League, which is one of the most competitive leagues in the nation, hands down.

Defensively, Guangorena has a feel for the catching position, calls a solid game, and controls his pitching staff. At times he has minor lapses in concentration and will let a ball get behind him, however his leadership and presence behind the dish is where his value lies.

Guangorena and the Braves of St. John Bosco came into the 2018 season as returning champs of the Trinity League and looked to repeat, however they did not get the result they were looking for and missed the CIFSS playoffs this year. Goes to show how hard it is to repeat in the Trinity League. If Guangorena chooses not to sign, he will attend Big West powerhouse Cal State Fullerton, where he will have the opportunity to make an immediate impact.
