Drafted in the 4th round (130th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2019 (signed for $955,000)
A 5-foot-9, 176-pound shortstop, Cairo will be knocked for his size, but he is a polished player both offensively and defensively. He has a strong hit tool and a history of making solid contact against good pitching, although power will likely never be a major part of his game given his frame. He has quick hands and a short, line-drive oriented stroke from the right side. Defensively, Cairo has an advanced feel for the game, which shouldn’t come as a surprise as the son of 17-year big leaguer Miguel Cairo. While he’s just an average runner, Cairo has excellent instincts and always seems to put himself in the right position with impeccable glove work and above-average arm strength. Despite all of that, the fact that Cairo is undersized and a righthanded hitter without plus speed could mean he goes to college, and he is expected to be a tough sign out of his commitment to Louisiana State.
