Scouting Report

7/01/20

At 6-foot-3, 195-pounds, the frame is impressive and easy to dream on with considerable amount of strength still left to come. He has crisp, controlled athleticism including a 6.84 60-yard dash time, and while his frame might ultimately push him to a corner position, the power potential at the plate will allow his prospect status to remain high. The bat will be the carrying tool, and he demonstrated an impressive ability to hammer balls from gap-to-gap. The ball comes off Guerra’s bat at a “different” speed, and there is a loudness to the contact that is only surprising given the low effort of the setup and swing. The quickness of the hands stands out, and he was able to remain balanced even on secondary offerings, keeping the hands back, and getting off aggressive hacks on any and all pitches. 

 

3/31/20

The #1 player in the state for the ‘21 class and a top 250 national prospect, Guerra is starting to take his game to the next level with added physicality and strength. His 6-foot-3, 192 pound frame is holding noticeably more mass than earlier this spring. His fluid defensive actions are still prevalent and he is able to get the ball across the diamond with minimal effort. At the plate, the contact is loud and his high, two-handed finish thru could allow him to tap into some serious power this spring. Generates his bat speed with minimal effort. Hands stay quiet and he remains balanced in the box. 

 

4/29/19

Sporting a lean, highly athletic frame at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds. Guerra has terrific size for MINF and looks athletic enough to stick there long-term. Defensively, the actions are smooth and fluid with easy, controlled effort. Possesses exceptional body control throughout fielding process, especially while moving laterally. Arm action is loose and whippy while avoiding getting too long or extended. Plenty of arm strength to get the ball across the diamond. Had a tough day at the plate, going 0-2 with 2 K’s while also drawing a BB. The set-up and actions in the box are balanced and relaxed. Slightly open stance with low hand placement before getting into his forward stride. Hands stay loose and allow him to generate easy bat speed. Looks capable of tapping into some power as his frame develops. Overall, has an advanced skill set for a young player with some physical upside still remaining.
