    A former player on the Ontario Blue Jays club team, the Toronto native has already been drafted twice, first by the Astros in the 20th round out of high school and again last June as an eligible sophomore in the 36th round by the Tigers. A long-bodied 6-foot-5 shortstop, Pinero has added muscle mass over the last couple of seasons, but his power remains more gap-to-gap than over the fence. He controls the strike zone well at the plate, but scouts aren't sold on his motor. A solid-average player all around, his best tool might just be his arm, with some evaluators suggesting he could even move to the mound. It's unlikely Pinero sticks at shortstop at the next level, especially considering his size and lack of burst, but he could be a serviceable utility player. He's not necessarily a lock to sign this June, as he put out a big bonus request last year.
