Paez impressed evaluators in the Cape Cod League over the summer, batting .295/.417/.372 in 129 at-bats. The Coastal Carolina shortstop went on to hit 14 home runs through 240 at-bats this spring, batting .296/.382/.558, but those numbers came in a hitter's friendly park, and the buzz around him has generally decreased. Paez has shown less feel for hitting this spring and instead seems more intent on trying to hit home runs, overswinging from his compact 5-foot-9, 175-pound frame. An average runner, Paez doesn't have a clear carrying tool, and most scouts view him as a second baseman in pro ball.
