Loaded Talent in the International Signing Pool, and Potential Twins Targets

8 of 11

8. Brayan Hernandez, OF, Venezuela

Like his countryman Amundaray, Brayan Hernandez is a lanky, athletic outfielder who projects to play a corner outfield position. His hit tool is his best tool, though his defense shouldn’t be far behind. He displays great footwork in the outfield, as well as a top notch throwing arm. He’s a switch hitter with a smooth swing from each side of the plate, though he tends to get a little long from the right side. Of course, this is something that should be easily fixed once he gets into a team’s system. He’s more of a gap hitter than a home run hitter, though at 6’1″, 170 lbs., the 17 year old should add a bit more home run power as his career progresses. The Mariners have been linked to Hernandez.
