Cape CodThe top pitching prospect for the Gatemen in next year’s draft is the former Florida Gator who will be sophomore-eligible by age for the 2024 draft. At this point, Tejeda is an early Day Two follow who will need to polish his fastball command and sharpen his slider to be considered any higher. At 6-foot-8, 215 pounds, Tejeda is long, loose and athletic with good arm speed. An athletic mover, he repeats his delivery exceptionally well for someone of his height and age. During my look, his fastball touched 96 and sat 93-94. He commanded the pitch in and out more than up/down, but did a solid job of driving it downhill into the zone. His slider flashed above average, yet more were of fringe quality. The development of this pitch more than anything else will be a large key to his draft value. He will need to improve it to a consistent swing/miss offering as opposed to its current means as a soft contact inducer. Tejeda also mixed in a usable mid-80s split grip changeup and what looked to be a 90-91 mph cutter. He is certainly one to watch as a potential helium prospect next spring.

Positional Profile: 1B/RHP - Florida, A two-way player and while there is definitely potential on the mound, the offensive profile may have been the best in any class we saw all fall. He has an elite ability to create leverage and bat speed while staying compact and in the zone a long time. There is huge power potential without huge swing and miss. Overall, there is a lot to like in not only how the swing works, but how he approaches his at-bats as well. He was on time and did not miss many pitches he could hit all weekend. Present tools are there with the innate ability to hit and drive the ball.
Body: 6-foot-6, 205-pounds. Large, lean long frame with athleticism and room to fill out.
Defense: Solid defender, athleticism plays around the bag .
Arm: RH. INF - 90 mph. Above average with a lot of carry.
Hit: Switch. Slightly open, knees bent, upper half adjusts well with pitch. Really adjustable swing, balanced and under control. Freddie Freeman-esque with the high back elbow that gets into slot early and a top half that adjusts well for the big frame. He stays compact and still creates a lot of bat speed and leverage. High end bat with top round potential.
Power: 102 mph exit velocity. Has a chance for elite power. Compact, while creating above average torque and bat speed. He has leverage, while also using the lower half well. There is not much to critique as the swing is very advanced and played up all weekend. Will continue to add power as he adds strength to the frame and mature. Very elite hitter. 

Delivery: Upright, in line, simple and could get down the mound more, but lets quick arm work.
Arm Action: RH. Simple, half circle, compact, quick and easy.
FB: T90, 86-90 mph. The ball jumps out of the hand, quick arm with late life.
CB: 73-74 mph.
