06.26.18
Athletic 5-foot-11, 172-pound frame with quick-twitch ability and room to develop even more strength into his frame.  Cervantes impressed in the infield with his abilities to play into hops with his feet, he glides to balls with quick footwork, and has a very quick release and arm action. Cervantes showed the ability to maneuver his body and change arm angles very effectively and accurately, and topped out at 87 mph. He moved well laterally to both sides to make plays, and attacked the slow roller and showed his ability to make plays on the run look easy. Cervantes has the defensive skill set to stick at shortstop and excel at the next level. He ran a 7.00 laser-timed 60. Posted 85 mph exit velocity off the tee, and drove the ball in the left-center gap during BP. He starts in a slightly-open athletic stance, pulls his left knee back and has a short stride with a smooth load back, controls the barrel with a short path to the baseball, has quick hands at the plate, and excellent balance in the swing.

Cervantes has an athletic frame at 5-foot-11, 172-pounds. The right-handed hitter had a strong showing at the event, putting together a solid round of batting practice and then going 2-for-3 during the game with 3 QAB’s. He hammered a fly ball to deep centerfield, singled sharply to left, and doubled to right field. He starts from a tall, open stance, then pushes back with a reverse leg lift as he triggers his hands. Short stride, lands balanced with energy before he rotates his lower half. Short, fluid path with loose-quick hands. Strong contact, barrel awareness, gap approach with a loose finish and an exit velocity of 84 mph. At shortstop, Cervantes moves easy with smooth actions, soft hands, quick exchange into an short, hgh-¾ arm stroke at 78 mph across the diamond. Can throw from different slots, including throwing on the run. Has a good sense of timing and takes efficient routes.

5-foot-11, 172-pound, sturdy, strong frame. Cervantes would be a great addition to a recruiting class with his ability to defend on the infield and handle the bat with gap power. He has quick footwork, smooth actions, soft hands and showcased advanced glove action with a quick exchange during the infield workout. He threw 82 mph across the diamond and gets rid of the ball quickly from multiple arm slots. Offensively, Cervantes has balanced setup with smooth rhythm, hands stay relaxed as he loads with a simple leg kick, lands into an athletic launch position. Quick bat and clean path through the zone with barrel on plane and a loose, high finish. Exit velocity of 86 mph with more to come, flashes pull side power when he turns it loose.
