Yordys Valdes
Name: Yordys Valdes
Born: Aug 16, 2001 in Hollywood, Florida USA
High School: McArthur HS, Hollywood, Fla.
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 170 lbs
Bats: B / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (63rd overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2019 (signed for $1,001,000)
A pop-up shortstop in Florida, Valdez is a glove-first player with advanced actions and ability up the middle. He compares well with the best prep defenders in the 2019 class, and he has put himself in position to go on the first day of the draft as a switch-hitter who should stick at shortstop. As confident and flashy as Valdez is defensively, his bat has a long way to go. There is some contact ability, but he lacks the size and strength to drive the ball with impact on a regular basis.
