High School: Coral Springs (Fla.) HS

Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 10th round (296th overall) by the New York Mets in 2013 (signed for $200,000)
Guillorme was born in Venezuela and played for its national teams as a 12-year-old. He moved to the United States for high school and has dazzled Florida area scouts with defensive displays that evoke Omar Vizquel. He has tremendous quickness and footwork at shortstop with nimble feet, soft hands and solid arm strength. He would clearly rank as one of the best defensive players in the draft, but his offensive future keeps him from ranking higher. Guillorme plays defense with passion and energy and would go in the first three rounds if scouts had more confidence in his bat. He's a fringe-average runner with a light bat from the left side. He's signable, as he's committed to the State JC of Florida (formerly Manatee JC).
