    View Draft Report
    Pantojas has an attractive profile as one of the better defensive shortstops in the draft class, and a lefthanded hitter plays with energy. He has a slender, athletic 5-foot-11, 160-pound build and has grown stronger over the last year, but he needs to continue to add strength. He grows on scouts in game action because of his defensive prowess as a soft-handed, reliable defender with above-average range and a strong, accurate arm. Pantojas' speed plays as average out of the box and better on the bases with good baserunning instincts. Added strength has helped his swing as a contact-oriented hitter with a slightly uphill path, but he's still unlikely to produce much impact with the bat and will have well below-average power. The scarcity of talent at the position could push him up draft boards.
