From Baseball America: Oscar Serratos Scouting Report

2 Comments »
Oscar Serratos   SS/RHP     Grayson HS, Loganville, Ga.

Ranked 314th nationally, 10th in Georgia

Serratos has a projectable 6-foot-1 frame and a solid all-around collection of tools. He shows smooth footwork and actions in the infield to go along with above-average to plus arm strength. Serratos flashes quick hands in the batter’s box and can show natural timing in batting practice with the ability to spray line drives to all fields. Scouts aren’t sold that his line-drive ability can play against elite pitching; he showed some swing-and-miss on the showcase circuit and this spring. Serratos is an average runner and not a lock to stay at shortstop. He’s an exciting prospect on the mound, where he has less experience. Serratos can reach the low 90s with his fastball and has shown promise with a changeup. He is young for the class and won’t turn 18 until September. Serratos is committed to Georgia Tech.

He is very young! We will likely have openings at 2B and 3B next season, so if he doesn’t get drafted, he at least will be given a chance to compete for a spot there. Interesting note about his potential on the mound. Can never have enough arms at the college level.
