A sprained ankle slowed his game this summer so my limited look wasn’t the best, but it was another look at one of the top prospects for 2023. When healthy, Gonzalez moves smoothly all around the diamond. He also has an especially smooth stroke in the batter’s box. It’s a compact, easy lefthanded swing with excellent barrel control. Although he struggled this summer (4-for-22 with seven strikeouts), the true freshman slashed .355/.443/.561 with 12 home runs and more walks (38) than strikeouts (34) for the Rebels this spring. The D1 Baseball Freshman of the Year, Gonzalez has all the tools to develop into a first round pick in 2023.

A California prep, Gonzalez is a smooth defender with an even smoother swing. The lefty hitter ripped a line drive home run deep to right field during the Rebels’ W against Texas Tech and batted .364 (4-for-11) from the three-hole during the Showdown. Gonzalez has all the tools to develop into a top round pick for 2023 and will likely compete for National Freshman of the Year honors this season.

Ole Miss commit. The two-sport standout (QB on football team) put together one of, if not the, best rounds of batting practice that saw him launch several balls out of the yard and pepper the outfield fence a few times. He showed the ability to go the other way during both BP and in-game. It’s a smooth, relaxed, effortless swing with excellent barrel control through the zone. Defensively his present tools all grade at average to above. His footwork and glovework were impressive, but it’s his range and arm strength that set him apart from the others. At 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, there’s plenty of physical projection remaining as he’ll undoubtedly continue to add strength/mass.
