View Draft ReportPlatero took advantage of all the eyes on teammate Matt McLain this spring and drew some interest of his own. Platero is one of the youngest players in the draft class and shows some of the best pure arm strength in the region with a 90-95 mph fastball. His arm strength and youth give him a considerable ceiling, but the rest of his game is raw. His power slurve and changeup aren’t ready for pro ball, and his control of all of his pitches is scattered. Platero is committed to Long Beach State and expected to end up there, but his youth and arm strength have a few teams interested.
