Scouts coming into the Orlando area to see Brendan Rodgers don't have to travel far to see another top high school infielder on the same trip. Mountcastle plays about 20 miles away from Rodgers and, while he doesn't have the massive upside of the class' top player, he is a solid prospect in his own right. Mountcastle stands out most for his hitting ability. He has tremendous bat speed leads to elite exit velocity when he squares balls up, giving him above-average power. He has a loose swing and does a good job of making adjustments to make consistent contact. Defensively, Mountcastle isn't as advanced. He plays shortstop in high school, but won't stay there at the next level, whether that's the minor leagues or Central Florida, where he's committed for college. He's played some third base in the past, but his below-average arm strength makes left field a more likely landing spot.
