    Palacios comes from a baseball family, as his uncle Rey played parts of three seasons in the major leagues with the Royals. He's from Brooklyn and attended San Jacinto (Texas) for two seasons before transferring to Auburn, where he was the Tigers' top hitter before a wrist injury on April 7 ended his season. He's a left fielder for Auburn who has a good swing and potentially above-average bat thanks to his natural rhythm at the plate and feel for hitting. He's an average runner who fits a tweener profile, with his power falling below what scouts look for in a corner profile, so he'll likely be tried in center field as a pro to see if he can be a future fourth outfielder.
