Drafted in the 11th round (341st overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2012 (signed for $100,000)
One of the youngest players in the draft, Brito doesn't turn 18 until December but already is 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds. He's limited to first base, so scouts are only worried about one tool: his bat. A righthanded hitter, Brito shows 70 raw power on the 20-80 scale, but getting that power to translate into games is his biggest challenge. He's likely going to be a below-average hitter. His swing can get long and he has a tendency to collapse his backside, which alters his eye level. He's a slow-twitch athlete, but scouts are intrigued because they believe he'll be able to make adjustments in pro ball and because that kind of power is hard to find.
