Drafted in the 9th round (256th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2017 (signed for $10,000)
Contreras teamed with Austin Sodders at Canyon Springs (Moreno Valley, Calif.) HS and again at UC Riverside. Sodders was an eighth-round pick in 2016 and Contreras should join his friend in pro ball shortly. Contreras is a polished lefthanded hitter who hit .332 as a junior and .366 as a senior despite missing one month with a broken hamate bone. He shows plus raw power in batting practice but it doesn't play in games as he alters his approach to make line drive contact. Contreras has an explosive first step that allows him to get out of the box quickly and produce a high volume of doubles and triples. That same first step allows him to survive in center field, but his average raw speed and average arm project best in left field.
