Drew Mendoza’s Scouting Report
Mendoza started to turn heads when he hit a 93 mph fastball from Brady Singer out of the park. He has a smooth, fluid swing that generates tremendous bat speed. Line driver with very good plate approach and power potential, more of a doubles hitter at this point. Mendoza will most likely grow out of shortstop and looks like a future third baseman at this point in his development. He has a strong arm and an above average glove, so he should make a solid big league third baseman.
- Average defender
- Above average arm
- Very good athlete
- Good contact hitter
- Strong commitment to Florida State

Where could Mendoza end up in the draft?
Signability may be an issue with Mendoza, but he could go to the Nationals at 28 or 32 to the Dodgers. Going that early might be tough for him to turn down. Another option would be the Braves at 40 or 44, since they would potentially have the bonus pool money to sway him away from Florida State. There’s a good chance Mendoza could slip in the draft if teams feel like he won’t sign.
