6/11/19

6’ 185-pound frame. Starts with a square stance, using small leg lift, using tow tap until ready to get foot down. Hands even with shoulder, staying behind rear shoulder. Good rhythm throughout load. Pull approach, doing a good job keeping hands in to get to the ball inside. Exit velo at 82 MPH. Used a crow hop to produce an event best 89 MPH throw from the outfield with accuracy and good carry.

6/5/18 - 6-foot 175-pound frame. Strong, athletic build. Showed ability as both a position and pitcher. Hit from a wide set up and maintained balance throughout the swing. Good extension through contact; 84 exit velocity. Defensively projects best as a corner outfielder where he moved confidently and aggressively. Good footwork and momentum through his throws; 85 mph outfield velocity. Posted a 7.35 60-yard dash. On the mound Santiago worked 78-81 mph with his fastball that had some life to his arm side. Have seen up 84 mph two weeks prior. Created good downhill plane on pitches down in the zone. Showed the ability to spin an 11/5 breaking ball at 67-69 mph. Also threw a change up at 69-73 mph that was an effective weapon when thrown in the bottom half of the strike zone.

5/20/18 - Physical 6-foot, 175-pound frame with present strength. Posting a 7.12 60-yard dash and 84 mph outfield velo, Santiago is intriguing as a position player, but showed best on the mound, sitting 79-83 and touching 84 mph with a longer arm action, high 3/4 slot and slight open-toe landing position. The secondary offerings are still developing, but the combination of athleticism and arm strength make Santiago and intriguing follow. Santiago’s 67-72 mph showed a somewhat inconsistent release, tending to pop up out of his hand early, but he did flash a promising one. The 68-72 mph changeup is also developing, as he tended to cut the ball and slow his arm some. Offensively, he hits from a wider setup, creating a very wide base with his stride. The somewhat inconsistent bat path and timing don’t always allow him to show his strength and the 75 mph exit velo he posted is indicative of that. Attacks ball aggressively in the outfield with looser, shorter arm action than he shows on the mound. Would be interested to see if he could translate that over to the bump.
