    One of the toughest parts of a scout's job is determining which high school hitters have the hand-eye coordination, bat speed and approach to succeed in pro ball and which ones don't. That's one of the reasons that hitters like Oviedo often make it to college, as it's easier to let them prove it for three more years. No one wonders how well Oviedo can catch up to a fastball, as he's shown the ability to time velocity and yank it for power, but his fastball-heavy approach leaves him vulnerable to breaking balls and changeups. Whether he heads to Texas Christian or pro ball, Oviedo will begin his career at shortstop, but there's a decent chance he'll eventually end up at second or third base. Oviedo has above-average power potential to make a potential switch to second or third work, but the questions about his hit tool and the high price needed to buy any prospect out of TCU gives him a decent chance to end up on campus next fall.
