Florida Draft Recaps: Paul Labriola, Max Romero Jr, Carter Stewart

Doug Freeman
Florida Executive Director

As we come ever closer to the 2019 MLB Draft, we have been on the road checking in on prospects across the state. Today we take a look at a pair of high school prospects in Paul Labriola and Max Romero as well as top junior college prospect Carter Stewart.



Maxwell Romero Jr. C / Pembroke Pines Charter, FL / 2019

The Vanderbilt recruit looks to have become more lean throughout his strong and durable frame. Defensively, he continued to show above average feel for the position, while he could simplify his setup some and let his hands work more naturally, the tools are there and nuances will continue to improve with reps. He is flexible and gets into good positions while also showing an above average arm with pop times in the 1.9 range. Offensively, he was clearly superior to his South Broward counterpart. Sat on a below average fastball twice, barrelling both for singles and a pair of RBIs. He stays balanced, stacked on his back side and generates above average bat speed. Overall, has a chance to be an above average defender and hit for both average and power.
