    Avina impressed scouts this spring out of Spanish Springs High in Sparks, Nev., and brings a solid all-around tool set to the table. He’s a good athlete with plenty of twitch in his 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame and scouts think he has a chance to be an above-average hitter, though he hasn’t faced the best competition so that evaluation is tough and is perhaps split amongst the industry. Some teams really like his swing and think he’ll have a chance to get to an above-average hit tool in the future with a few tweaks that will let him elevate the ball more consistently. Avina has a chance to stick in the middle of the field somewhere, whether that’s at shortstop, second base or center field. His arm is also strong enough that it might become plus in the future. He’s committed to Nevada and could blow up if he makes it to campus, but there’s plenty of interest in him inside the top-10 rounds if he’s signable.
