Scouting Report

An athletic, switch-hitting catcher who’s new to the position after playing shortstop earlier in his career, Ballestero has some power potential from both sides of the dish with a loose, handsy swing. He didn’t hit well on the summer showcase circuit prior to his senior year, and he’ll need to refine his actions and defensive ability behind the plate, but he has the talent and frame to improve his stock with a few years in the ACC at Virginia.
