Son of former Mariners' manager Don Wakamatsu, Luke is a very polished high school shortstop, much like one would expect for someone who has grown up around the game. Wakamatsu has the hands, actions and range scouts look for in a shortstop. He needs to add good weight and strength to his skinny 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame. Wakamatsu is an above-average runner and he swings the bat well from both sides of the plate but doesn't drive the ball yet. He's committed to Rice.
