Leugim Castillo, SS, Lancaster HS, NY (2017)
Castillo stands 6-foot-2 185-pounds and has great size and a projectable athletic build. At the plate he put on a BP display. His stance is open with weight on his back leg. He uses a stride before the swing and his bat path is pretty level through the zone. He gets great extension producing some serious power and finishes high. His exit velocity was 84 mph. From the infield he works athletically and stays wide fielding the ball out in front of his body. He moves laterally well and has very quick, clean hands. He throws from a mid/high 3/4 slot at 70 mph. He ran a 6.89 60.

Castillo has the size and athleticism that most college coaches and pro scouts look for. He runs well above average, and at the plate his bat is high-level with serious signs of power. His arm is the only tool that lacks in top-end grading now, but with a serious concentration on arm-strength this winter, he's athletic enough to make quick velocity gains without-a-doubt. Fun prospect to keep an eye on. We look forward to seeing him at our Feb. 15 mega invite-only event in Oswego, NY.
