C.J. Hinojosa to Houston Astros: Video Highlights, Scouting Report and Analysis
Height/Weight: 5’11”/185 lbs
High School: Klein Collins (Texas)
College Commitment: Texas
Although he’s not a physical specimen, Hinojosa has impressive tools that play up due to his high baseball IQ.
A patient hitter who has advanced pitch recognition for his age, he has plus bat speed that allows him to jump the yard to all fields; that's especially appealing from a middle infield prospect. He’s only an average runner, but takes a good first step in the field and compensates for any lack of range with slightly above-average arm strength.
After a disappointing start to his senior season, Hinojosa underwent surgery to repair loose and damaged ligaments in his left shoulder. Therefore, given the three to five-month recovery timetable, his 2012 season was essentially over before it began.
Hinojosa still seems adamant on attending Texas next year, as he even considered graduating high school a semester early to begin his college career this spring. The injury has made it difficult to project Hinojosa’s future as a big leaguer, and many believe that attending college will be crucial toward his overall development.
However, if he does ultimately sign, there’s a chance he’s moves to second base, where his bat is still a premium and could have him in the major leagues by early 2016.
