Drafted in the 3rd round (95th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2018 (signed for $900,000)
Gil draws some comparisons to Luke Wakamatsu, a 20th-round pick of the Indians in 2015 who received a day two signing bonus. Like Wakamatsu, Gil has big league bloodlines--he's the son of long-time big leaguer Benji Gil. And as the son of a big leaguer, Gil shows advanced feel and understanding of the game. He's a smooth, polished defender at shortstop with an accurate, average arm and solid athleticism. Gil is a divisive prospect. A majority of teams do not see him as having enough tools to be worthy buying him out of his Texas Christian commitment. But there are a few teams who see Gil's strong hands and wrists and see him developing more power as he matures to go with an advanced approach at the plate.
