Santillian wasn't seen much on the showcase circuit last summer, but he did appear in Jupiter last fall at the World Wood Bat event. There he showed excellent velocity (91-94 mph) from a relatively easy delivery at his best, and fell apart attempting to throw the ball all over the place from the stretch at his worst. Teams that have stayed on him this spring have seen that the velocity has gotten even better (93-95 touching 98), and he does it relatively easily, although his control remains well below-average. His secondary stuff isn't very consistent yet, but Santillian has flashed a slider with promise to become a swing-and-miss weapon and upper-70s power. He is a solid athlete at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds who is a potential two-way player if he makes it to Texas Tech. That's unlikely as some team will take a chance on a power arm and hope they can refine his delivery and repertoire with plenty of work and time.
