Bats: R
Class: HS
Height: 6'4"
Throws: R
DOB: 12/11/99
Weight: 185


Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 50 | Run: 30 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45


Vientos entered the spring as one of the more intriguing high school bats in the country, one who many thought had first-round potential. An up-and-down spring has made him a bit more of a polarizing prospect than that, with opinions on him varying greatly. Vientos' offensive potential is what had scouts interested in the first place, so if you saw him when he was swinging the bat well, you like him. He hasn't done that as consistently as some would have liked to see. He does show good bat speed and has definite power potential from the right side of the plate. Vientos isn't overly athletic, so even though he plays shortstop for his high school team at American Heritage, he will likely have to move to third at the next level, with some thinking he has the hands and arm strength to handle the hot corner. Vientos did miss some time this spring with a quad injury, but he certainly has been seen enough over the summer and at events like the National High School Invitational. He reminds some of Manny Machado in terms of body type, and he's also drawn a Michael Morse in high school comp. A team believing his bat will play will give the Miami commit a shot in the opening few rounds.

I've been comping him to Wilmer Flores for months. Great value here. Assumed he was going in the first.

Also, youngest prospect in the entire draft, which is great. Doesn't turn 18 until December.

I like it too. There were a bunch of directions they could have gone but this one works.

He is 5'8 plus Vientos bat projection is much bigger than Allen.
