Drafted in the 12th round (354th overall) by the Cincinnati Reds in 2019 (signed for $249,000)
A 6-foot-1, 178-pound shortstop, Contreras flashes defensive tools and bat-to-ball skills and is also an above-average runner. He’s long had impressive bat speed but lacks the strength to drive the ball with authority, but his wide shoulders and projectable frame could help in that regard. Contreras was one of the more impressive players at the Excellence Tournament, and showed more ability with the bat than scouts had seen previously. He has enough arm to stick at shortstop or, if necessary, third base. Contreras is committed to San Jacinto (Texas) JC.
