Drafted in the 28th round (846th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2018 (signed for $30,000).
View Draft ReportA twitchy third baseman with plus raw power, Cresto guesses a lot at the plate and also chases frequently. When he barrels the baseball it's loud contact, but he doesn't make enough contact just yet. He's athletic enough to play an outfield position if he can't pick it at third.
Cresto was a three-sport athlete at Cathedral Catholic High and is committed to Santa Clara, where his older sister plays volleyball. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, he has good size for an infielder and has some hitting ability, which he showcased during the Area Code Games. He repeats his low-maintenance swing and has some present strength, though scouts have to project on his power potential. He moves well for his size but profiles better at third base long term. He has a solid-average arm that fits on the left side of the infield.
