    Pineda's best attributes are his youth--he'll be 17 until late November--and his strong righthanded swing. He has a fluid stroke and advanced barrel awareness, and his timing has improved as he matured in the past year. Pineda wasn't for everyone and not every team crosschecked him, but his quick righthanded bat and above-average arm endeared him to some clubs. He is committed to Michigan, where he could develop into a more prominent draft prospect in three years.
