A February workout in Puerto Rico drew several dozen scouts, and Angel Morales and Neftali Soto were the two prospects to show the most potential. But when even more scouts showed up for a predraft workout on the island in May, it was the slick-fielding Navarro who earned accolades. He swings the bat with authority, hitting line drives to left field with plus bat speed. He is susceptible to balls on the outer half, as he tends to cheat on the inside pitch, but he shows a willingness to spread out and use the middle of the field with two strikes, so it's reasonable to think Navarro can refine his overall approach. He has flashy, natural actions up the middle, and other than improving his consistency on routine, Navarro's defensive package is his most appealing asset. He has a fringe-average arm. He's a solid-average runner. Navarro could be drafted as early as the second round.
