Prospect: Bryan Lavastida
Position: Infielder/Catcher
Organization: Cleveland Indians
Height/Weight: 6’0”, 200 lbs.
Bats/Throws: R/R
Age/DOB: Sophomore (Two-Year)
Acquired/Hometown: Round 15 (2018); CLE

March 26, 2018 — Hillsborough Community College (NJCAA Junior College)
Drafted in the 15th round (463rd) of the 2018 MLB Draft by the Cleveland Indians; draft listed as a catcher, but never seen behind the plate in my looks; third baseman when I saw him with Hillsborough Community College in March … Good hands at third; pretty good reaction times on the ball with a quick first step. Exchanges quickly, throws very well across the diamond; good arm with tight, quick arm action and good accuracy through to target … Decent runner; timed him 4.20 and 4.24 up the line to first base from the RHH box in my look. Good overall athlete who moves well and shows both foot speed and lateral quickness … Short, compact stroke at the plate; not a ton of raw power, and produces a decent amount of weaker ground ball contact, but has some feel for the barrel and shows good plate discipline and strike zone awareness. Bryan Lavastida is primarily a contact guy who won’t provide a ton of value with the bat in pro ball, but could be a decent top/bottom of the order hitter who can set the table; makes for a decently versatile draft pick for the Cleveland Indians here in 2018 — especially depending upon how good he may be behind the plate.
