2018 NYM Draft: Round 3, Pick 83: 2B Carlos Cortes

Tue Jun 05, 2018 1:21 pm

Carlos Cortes, OF, Univ. of South Carolina
Ht/Wt: 5’7”/197 B/T: L/R Age (as of 2018 MLB Draft): 20y, 11m

Cortes utilizes excellent trunk and core strength to produce plus impressive power to the pull side given his size and demonstrates an ability to work for pitches he can drive. There are some plate coverage concerns, which were evident on the Cape last summer, but the raw materials are here for a big league contributor with the stick. Though his .244 batting average would indicate a down year, Cortes demonstrated on base skills by drawing more walks (39) than strikeouts (29) and hit 15 homeruns.

I'm getting a Eudor Garcia flashback with maybe more walks and obviously, less height. Please tell me I'm wrong.

This has been a pretty dull round. Not like anyone following him is knocking my socks off.

Can't wait to see how that .215 BABIP translates to Brooklyn!
