    From Benito Santiago to Ivan Rodriguez and Jorge Posada to the Molina brothers and Geovany Soto, Puerto Rico has long been a breeding ground for catchers. This year is no exception. A handful of catchers could be selected in the top 10 rounds of the draft, and Roidany Aguila could be the first off the board. A Cuban who moved to Puerto Rico by way of Miami, Aguila is solidly built at 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds. He's a gamer with a good arm and good instincts behind the plate, with pop times in the 1.9-second range. He's more of a defensive catcher, but in Jupiter, Fla., last summer at the World Wood Bat Championship, Aguila turned around a 91 mph Tyler Skaggs fastball for a triple. He's committed to Bethune-Cookman.
