5-foot-11, 175-pound strong athletic frame. One of the most well-rounded players at the showcase with confident body language. The left-handed hitter starts from an athletic stance, slightly crouched, with smooth rhythm throughout. Relaxed load with a controlled leg kick, displayed excellent balance and body control. Aggressive swing with bat speed and power (92 mph exit velo). Loose-quick hands whip the barrel through the zone with good extension through contact on an uphill plane. Great barrel awareness with pull side pop. On the infield, he has quick footwork and plays through the ball with easy rhythm, simple glove actions and soft hands, very smooth transfer on double play feed to his right. Can play on the run and makes all the throws from different slots that should allow him to stay on the infield at a high level. Throws across the diamond with high end accuracy and carry with a top velocity of 88 mph. Ran a 6.91 laser-timed 60.


08.12.17 - Underclass Area Code Games 
Uncommitted 2020 INF Orlando Salinas (Richard King HS, TX) does not get cheated at the plate where he gets everything he can out of his 5-foot-11, 160-pound frame. The young-looking, left-handed hitter got on several pitches, and drove them to the warning track where they were knocked down by the notorious marine layer of Southern California. His setup features a larger leg kick with a big hands hitch that ends with the barrel, nearly, pointing at the other batter’s box. While it may have looked excessive, his quick hands more than made up for it, and his loose finish made it all look right as he worked through the zone on an uphill path. For a younger, smaller kid playing with some excellent prospects, Salinas oozed confidence in himself, and always appeared to be “the hunter” at the plate. He has smooth hands in the field, and will be a hot commodity for recruiters moving forward.
