    Originally from Puerto Rico, Escalero-Maldonado is a showcase veteran who has committed to Stetson. His best tool is his speed, as he's a plus runner who generally covers 60 yards in around 6.6 seconds. He's a good athlete who has a chance to stay in the infield at the college level but would profile better in center field as a pro. He's a righthanded hitter with decent strength and surprising pop in his 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame. He's young for his draft year at just 17.
