    For years, Lopes was overshadowed by his high-profile older brother Christian, who wound up signing for an $800,000 bonus as the Blue Jays' seventh-round pick last year. The younger Lopes had a breakout performance at the Southern California Invitational in Compton in February, and scouts now think he is a better player than his brother. Lopes has some thickness in his lower half that worries some scouts, but he showed solid-average speed this spring that plays up because of his advanced baseball instincts. He has solid range and good actions at shortstop, though his average arm fits better at second base, where he has a chance to be a solid-average defender. His best asset is his natural feel for the barrel. He makes consistent, hard contact and has a mature, all-fields approach. Lopes projects as an average or slightly better hitter with fringe-average power at best. The UC Irvine recruit could be drafted between the second and fourth round.
