PLAYER PROFILE: Hector Lucero, C

Hector Lucero


Position: C      Bats: Right     Throws: Right

Date of Birth: 4/5/2001     Age: 15

Height: 6’3″     Weight: 190 lbs.

Analysis: When you watch Hector Lucero play it gives you a Salvador Perez like-feel.  There were once concerns about Perez outgrowing the catcher position and the same could apply to Lucero who stands at 6’3 190 pounds at only 15-years-old.  However, like Perez and many before him, if he can maintain being a plus defender behind the plate teams will have no choice but to leave him behind the plate.  Lucero’s defensive calling card is his arm strength but he also has good plate blocking ability.  Then you have his offensive ability which is even better than his defense thanks to an advanced approach at the plate, extremely quick hands, and power bat potential.  Lucero has the tools to stay behind the plate but even if he outgrows the position his arm and bat will play anywhere on the field.
