Scouting the 2017 Draft: Mark Vientos

Mark Vientos, SS, HS(FL).  B-R, T-R.  6'4", 190 lbs.

Vientos is a tall, lean 5-tool SS prospect out of Florida.  He's only got slightly above average speed at 6.99 for the 60(84 percentile), but throws 91 MPH from the IF(99 percentile).  His hit tool should project as his Time to Impact is just .102 sec(94 percentile).  He already has plus power in his bat but has oodles of projectable power in a lean(not skinny) frame.  Bonus:  He will only be 17 yo on drafter day.  Some scouting sites rate him as the top prospect in the entire draft!  Manny Machado is the most common comp that gets mentioned.  Like Machado, he is awfully big for a SS, but athletic enough to stick there, at least early in his career.
