    View Draft Report
    Padlo made a name for himself with a strong showing at the Area Code Games last summer, and he averaged 17 points a game for the Murrieta Valley High basketball team over the winter before transitioning to baseball. He had a quiet spring, hitting just .329 with two homers, but scouts have seen him flash above-average raw power. In order to harness it, he'll need to make adjustments to his approach, as he has a high leg lift and tends to swing out of his shoes. Padlo's game has plenty of effort in all facets. He isn't a smooth player, but he makes up for it with strength and energy. He handles shortstop ably for his high school team and shows enough arm strength for the left side, causing scouts to project him as a quality defender at third base. He also has a shot to hit for enough power for the hot corner, making him a candidate to be drafted in the top three to five rounds. He is committed to San Diego.
