    Kiner-Falefa was seen by a lot of scouts and crosscheckers as a teammate of outfielder Marcus Doi, who put himself on the map as a top prospect last summer. Kiner-Falefa finished his season on a high note by helping Mid-Pacific win a state championship. He has a thin, wiry build at 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds and stands out most for his defense. He wasn't a consensus guy for teams in the fourth round, but is an above-average defender with soft hands, good footwork and solid-average arm strength. He makes contact, but needs to add some strength and profiles as a line drive, gap hitter at best. Kiner-Falefa is committed to San Jose State, but should sign after being selected in the fourth round.
