    View Draft Report
    The second-best Puerto Rican prospect in the draft, Gonzalez is one of three top prospects from the island playing at Florida Air Academy. His best tool is his arm, and he has a low-90s fastball, but he has little interest in pitching. He prefers playing shortstop, though he's 6-foot-3 and some scouts don't think he gets down on balls well enough to stay there. He does have the hands and range to play short. He doesn't have the power to play third base, so the team that drafts him will have to envision him as a shortstop. The Dodgers have expressed a lot of interest and could take him in the third or fourth round.
