    Outfielder Ismael Salgado is the island's fastest player, having turned in 3.7-second times to first on drag bunts. He's wiry at 6-foot-1, 160 pounds and his overall game resembles that of Adrian Ortiz, who was a two-time fifth-round pick both out of Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and later out of Pepperdine. Salgado doesn't figure to go as high as he lacks present strength, making evaluations about his bat all projection.
