The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Almonte is the younger brother of Mariners farmhand Denny Almonte and generated heat early in the year before missing several weeks with a dead-arm period. He returned late in the year and hit 92 mph with his fastball as a reliever late in the spring as Columbus finished as the state's 8-A runner-up. He has a good, loose, projectable frame and has flashed potential with his slider and changeup when he was right physically. He's a Florida International signee.
