High School: Mission Viejo (Calif.) HS

Sandoval switched his college commitment this spring, de-committing from a loaded Vanderbilt class and choosing to stay closer to home, signing with Southern California. The lefthander stands out for his curveball, which was a plus pitch last summer at showcases and at the Perfect Game All-America Classic in San Diego. Sandoval played football last fall to add strength and help him maintain the velocity on his 90-91 mph fastball. His arm action has some length and a bit of a stab in the back, which can be difficult for him to repeat, leading to control struggles, but those were less frequent in his senior season. He had 30 walks and 99 strikeouts in 87 innings. Sandoval was finishing strong, pitching well to lead Mission Viejo on a deep playoff run, with 10 strikeouts in his latest playoff start.
