Unroe's father Tim played mostly first base and third base professionally for 11 years, including a brief time in the majors in five different seasons with the Brewers, Angels and Braves. Riley is a better defender, and some scouts say he'll be able to stay at shortstop. He has soft hands and a strong arm and is a heady player who is always in the right position. He's versatile enough that he could play second base or center field and is a well above-average runner. A lifelong switch-hitter, Unroe shows electric bat speed and profiles to hit 12-15 home runs as a pro, even though he's just 6 feet and 180 pounds. Scouts and coaches love the way he plays the game, and he has excellent makeup and international experience as a two-time member of Team USA with the 14-and-under in 2009 and the 18-and-under team last summer. It will likely take a seven-figure bonus to pry Unroe away from his commitment to Southern California.
