Long Island Prospect Preview (August 8, 2016)
Gil, with a thick, solid lower half stands at 5-foot-11 and 180-pounds. He ran a 7.65 60. Offensively- Powerful right-handed hitter who showed plus power to the left and right center gaps. Wide base with feet more than shoulder width apart and a slight crouch. Creates plus bat speed with excellent hip rotation and shows the ability to keep the hands behind his rotation which helps keep the barrel in the hitting zone for an extended time. Recorded an exit velocity of 90 MPH, which was an increase of 6 MPH from February. Defensively-  Fields the ball off the left side of the body. Creates momentum using a drop step. Showed the best arm strength of the day for infielders recording a top velocity of 82 MPH, an increase of 6 MPH from February. Aggressively attacks the ball and creates good hops, funnels the ball to the center of the body, separating hands and getting his feet set quickly to make strong throws. Projects to a corner position at the next level.
Spring 2016
Athletic/filled out body type. DH in today's game but we've seen positive left side actions from Gil at past events. Didn't see much to hit in the cleanup spot for Grand St., drew a walk and hit a deep flyball to RF to end game. Contact type hitter who can pepper the gaps. Gamer type with a good feel for the zone and works tough at bats. Good character/team guy.
Long Island Preseason Preview (February 18, 2016)
 Standing 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, an athletic build.  Hitting - At the plate, recorded ball exit speeds between 82-84 MPH.  His quiet, compact load allows him to repeat his mechanics consistently.  Head stays still maximizing his ability to pitch recognize and generates good bat speed from base in his swing. Infield - Threw 76 MPH across the diamond and has good footwork despite being tense in his upper body while fielding ground balls.  Good range and reaction allows him to comfortably move side to side.  Needs to be more efficient with his arm path from catch to release while allowing his footwork to gain momentum towards his target.  Outfield - Topped out at 79 MPH crow hopping in the outfield station.  Maintains infielders throwing mechanics and needs to work on the 6-to-12 arm swing that is natural in the outfield position.
