Drafted in the 18th round (573rd overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2012
After finishing fourth in hitting (.321) and fifth in slugging (.423) in the Cape Cod League last summer, second baseman Kevin Medrano positioned himself as an early-round pick for 2011. He lost that momentum when he sprained his left shoulder in an early-season collision at home plate and got off to a slow start. He does an excellent job of using the whole field and making line-drive contact from the left side and has solid speed, but the 6-foot, 160-pounder doesn't walk much and has little power. He plays good defense at second base, though his below-average arm strength precludes him from trying shortstop. Scouts appreciate his blue-collar mentality but can't get past the fact that he's a second baseman with one plus tool. His brothers Steve and Jesus both played pro ball and reached the upper minors.
