10/16/16- Chipola JC recruit. The 6-foot-1, 198 pound infielder has solid defensive actions and projects to slide over to third base and be an above average defensive third baseman. Offensively, the right-handed hitter showed a strong and balanced lower half. He showed some length and swing and miss in the swing, but he is strong and the frame has room to grow. If he continues to become more consistently short with the swing and fills out some, he should develop some average to above average power and be an above average defender.
10/08/16- Committed to Chipola College.

08/13/16- Athletic, 6-foot-2, 185 pound infielder that had two singles during game action with two solid rounds of batting practice. Athletic and projectable, there is some length in the swing, but he has a strong lower half and when he is direct to the baseball he has gap-to-gap power. He looks the part and has soft hands with good actions defensively, but he may end up moving to third as he continues to fill out.  
07/08/16- Uncommitted. The 6-foot-1 185-pounder has a strong lower half looking balanced and comfortable in the box. He shows good rhythm and stays on time to the ball. Arauz can get a little long, but has some strength and quick twitch in his hands. With more at-bats he will shorten the swing and should produce some power. They physicality and strength may project Arauz as more of a third basemen, but the bat should play at the next level.

4/2/15 - Sophomore, 6-foot-1 185 pound SS who is very strong, athletic, and has gotten a lot better since the start of the season.  Hitting at the top of the lineup for a talented team and now the everyday SS for a program with great tradition and talented juniors and seniors.  Good actions in the infield and has the arm to play SS.  Made a play (on Brent Killam, so he has good speed) in the hole where he backhanded hard hit GB, planted and threw a strike to beat the runner.  Going to be a top SS as he has the ability and arm to play there.  He did make a couple of throwing errors late in the game but these were just because he wasn’t getting his feet underneath him on his throws, something that should be easily corrected.  At the plate, he was not overmatched against a top arm in Kragel.  Had the only hit of the night for Sarasota, a line drive into LCF and also walked in his opening at bat.  Good speed as he had two stolen bases where he got great jumps and beat the good throw both times.
3/30/15 - Uncommitted. 6-foot-1 185 pounds with an athletic, lean, and strong body. Good-sized legs. Soft hands with quick, light feet in the field. Strong arm for his age with a short/over the top action. Takes good angles and attacks balls with good range. At the plate his hands are low and he gets a good separation. Flat swing with above average bat speed. Stays inside the ball well. Relaxed with good rhythm at the plate. Smooth and athletic actions all over the field.
3/17/15 - Only a sophomore, 6-foot-1 185 pounds and playing SS and hitting leadoff for a great program and a team filled with talented upper classmen.  Lean, athletic frame with room to fill out and add strength.  Looks like an athlete in the batter’s box and in the field.  Made some real nice plays in the field, has good actions and the arm to play at SS.  Had a play in the fourth where he knocked down a ball in the hole, picked up the ball barehanded, and still threw out a fast runner at first.  Hits from a slightly open stance, and has good bat speed and will continue to develop as a hitter, was 1-3 with a walk and a stolen base against Braden River.
