San Diego recruit Matt Cerda began to impress scouts with his performances on the Angels scout club in the fall of 2007. He followed that with a breakout day at the February showcase in Compton. Just 5-foot-8, 175 pounds, Cerda projects as a second baseman as a pro thanks to below-average range. He has an average arm. His best tool is his bat, as he has a quick, compact swing with extension and a full finish. Cerda's supporters see an offensive second baseman with strong makeup and an "old school" style of play. He would instantly make an impact in the Toreros' lineup if he doesn't sign.
