    Hinojosa picked a bad time to have a bad year. A 26th-round pick of the Astros out of high school, Hinojosa was a hero for Texas in the 2014 College World Series, getting a hit in all five of the Longhorns games. But his offensive production and defensively reliability has gotten worse each of his three years at Texas, and his .242/.321/.403 stat line was worst among Texas' regulars. Hinojosa has played through a hand injury, but he's also pressed too much after a slow start. At this point it's hard to project him as more than a below-average hitter with similar power. Defensively, Hinojosa has fringe-average range and an average arm that makes him a better fit as a second baseman or utility infielder than an everyday shortstop. He needs to become a more reliable defender.
