Drafted in the 2nd round (46th overall) by the Cincinnati Reds in 2000
Sardinha, a second-round pick out of high school, is so skilled defensively that scouts say he is already the equal of at least half the catchers in the big leagues. He has a middle-infielder's actions behind the plate and plays the position effortlessly--a mixed blessing because it has raised questions about his fire and passion. Sardinha's bat is a concern, even as he hit .403 with 13 homers in West Coast Conference games this year. He has trouble getting the bat head out front against top-notch pitching and projects as a .250-.260 hitter in the big leagues. In front of a throng of scouts at Loyola Marymount in April, he went 0-for-13 with nine strikeouts against a staff that features two premium draft picks.
