Gil of Castle Park High in Chula Vista, Calif., is an accomplished pitcher, but a majority of scouts like him better as a shortstop. Gil is the top pitcher in san Diego county and his two-way play has made it difficult for scouts to get an accurate reading on his arm strength as a shortstop, because the demands of pitching almost every other game take the zip off his throws.
