    Monge has a 6-foot, 170-pound build with solid athleticism. Right now, he stands out most for his defensive value, as he possesses above-average speed and arm strength, which should make him a strong defender in center field. He has a quick, balanced righthanded swing with hand strength and has been performing well at Puerto Rico's key events this spring. He is a gap-to-gap hitter now, with the potential to hit for average power. Monge's all-around tool package--and his signability, as he's not committed to a college--could get him drafted as high as the seventh round.
