al west houston astros baseball prospects news 1 juan paulino scouting report
Prospect: Juan Paulino
Position: C
Organization: Houston Astros
Height/Weight: 5’11”, 192 lbs.
Bats/Throws: L/R
Age/DOB: 20 (December 10, 1997)
Acquired/Hometown: Round 27 (2018), HOU

March 12, 2018 — Western Oklahoma State College (NJCAA)
Selected in the 27th round (822) of the 2018 MLB Draft by the Houston Astros out of Western Oklahoma State College … Incomplete report; never saw him catch in my look at Juan Paulino with Western Oklahoma State College; only saw the big man play first base and hit. Big, thick built kid who’s probably ideal behind the plate, at least in regards to size. Big bat in the middle of the lineup with plenty of raw power to all fields; hit a towering home run to left (opposite) field in my look; flicked the wrists, hand/wrist strength with barrel manipulation took the ball out of the yard. BP is a show. Easy power for him; potential for plus, particularly when you factor in his pull side pop potential; simple to see why Juan Paulino is attractive to the Houston Astros for that reason alone. Ceiling could push to larger role depending on how he turns out behind the plate; need to see more to figure that one out.
