Reginald Preciado

https://madfriars.com/2019/10/02/notes-from-don-welke-classic/

The Padres were out of the penalty box during this year’s international signing period which allowed them to shell out bonuses greater than $300,000. San Diego took advantage and signed shortstop Reginald Preciado to a $1.3 million bonus. The 16-year-old shortstop hails from Panama and despite his 6-foot-4 frame, he is expected to start at shortstop. Chris Kemp, the Padres’ director of international scouting and minor league field coordinator, had this to say about Preciado’s work in instructs:

“I’ve seen a lot of bat-to-ball. A lot of sixteen-year-olds struggle when they come over here; it’s rare to see a 16-year-old over here. He puts the ball in play. He took a couple of walks in game one and hit a hard ground ball to first. I think the thing that is most impressive about Reginald is just bat-to-ball on some 90-92 mph fastballs.”

18. Reginald Preciado, SS (‘19 Midseason Rank – 49)
Age: 16
2019 Highest Level: N/A
2019 Stats: N/A
Much like Perez, Preciado is tempting to dream on. A switch-hitting middle infielder who is already making tons of contact, he has a chance to rocket up lists this year as well. His swing is just a notch below where Perez is right now, but obviously, a lot can change in the next few years. Try to get one of these two guys when the price is low. ETA: 2024

Nathan (Phoenix):

    Thoughts on this year’s J2 class? Reginald Preciado?

Kyle Glaser: Preciado and Ismael Mena were both two of the better prospects in the July 2 class, and Preciado in particular made a big impression on the Padres player development staff during fall instructional league. There's a long way to go, but generally speaking the Padres J2 class is presently viewed in a favorable light.
