Calabuig does everything well, even if he lacks a plus tool. A 5-foot-11, 185-pound lefthanded-hitting outfielder, Calabuig is an above-average runner, above-average defender and a solid offensive player. He hit .359 with 21 doubles and a .987 OPS as a senior, leading the Aztecs to the Mountain West Conference tournament championship. Calabuig possesses excellent balance and timing in the batter's box. He hits the ball where it's pitched, uses the whole field and consistently turns in quality at-bats. His slight uppercut produces a lot of doubles, but he can turn on inside pitches for the occasional pull-side home run as well. Calabuig played right field in college, but he projects to play left field in pro ball because of his average arm. He can also handle center field, when needed. Calabuig is a well-spoken, energetic leader with strong makeup. His performance and well-rounded game makes him a candidate to be one of the first seniors signs drafted.
