    Center fielder Cotto has blazing speed, regarded by scouts as a legitimate 80 on the 20-80 scouting scale. At the island's annual Excellence Tournament in May, Cotto ran a 6.29-second 60-yard dash. But speed and defense are his only standout tools at the moment. He has a below-average arm and is a weak hitter. If he learns how to put the ball in play consistently he'll be an offensive threat, though, because of his game-changing speed. He is a switch-hitter and shows some bat speed from the right side of the plate, while he's more of a slap hitter from the left. Cotto made a late commitment to Southern California.
