45; Second-Division Regular
Shows good balance; bat is noisy before delivery; smooth through the zone; moderate barrel control; minimal load; moderate leg kick; shows good pitch recognition.
Line-drive hitter; showed solid power to his pull side; bat speed is above average; hit tool allows in-game power to play up.
Not a burner; speed plays up because of baserunning ability.
Shows decent range and mobility; gets good reads off the bat; soft hands; could stay at SS long term.
Solid accuracy; lacks arm strength however.
Warmoth is a high-floor middle-infielder who seems to only hit hard line drives. He showed good patience at the plate and was robbed of three straight line drive base hits into left-center by a terrific stop by the shortstop.
What Warmoth lacks in ceiling, he makes up for with a high floor. He should be able to stick at shortstop, and hit well enough to not be a liability there. He won’t be a great defensive shortstop at the major league level, but he should play good enough defense and hit well enough to be a solid regular.
