Part of the Cubs' 2013 international signing class, Galindo offers the potential to become a solid everyday corner infielder. He's shown bat to ball skills and his natural strength gives some pop. However, the game swing plays more towards line drives and limits his power potential. There are no standout tools like some of his 2013 counterparts, but it's a well rounded game with no glaring holes.
