Draft Spotlight

Delgado did a little bit of everything for Calvary Christian (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), helping the Eagles to a 3-1 record in this year’s National High School Invitational. At the plate, Delgado showed a patient approach – primarily from the left side – as well as above-average bat speed, good balance and feel for contact. He finished the tournament 3-for-11 with a single, a double, a triple, and two walks. More impressive, he did not strike out in 13 plate appearances.

Delgado flashed impressive leather at the six-spot while showing off solid arm strength from the hole and impressive body control, making several difficult plays after leaving his feet. He looks the part of a solid defender at the next level and has a good shot at sticking at short stop long term. Should he slide over to second base he could be a plus defender there.

The Florida International commit is a solid average runner whose speed plays up some on the bases thanks to good reads and jumps, as well as efficient lines. He should slot somewhere into the top three rounds of the MLB Draft come June, and profiles as an up-the-middle defender with a high-contact offensive approach and solid on-base production.
