Lucas Tirado-SS L/R 6’2″ 165lb (DOB 12-13-1996) Samana, DR
Trainer: Jaime Ramos
Lucas has participated in many major showcase events during the past 10 months, in August 2012 he was selected to Under Armour All-America game played at Wrigley field. He was also selected to play in the 2013 DPL All-Star Game and selected to the 2013 DPL Elite Travel Team in mid March.
Tirado is athletic and does things fairly effortlessly, he’s a left handed hitter with a good approach and gap to gap power. His swing tends to get long at times but posses enough bat speed to drive the ball to the alleys with occasional HR power. Defensively he’s fluid and has good hands, his range is limited and has average arm strength. He’s an average runner in the 60 yard dash at 6.9. He is still learning how to play the shorts stop position, at worst he will be an offensive second basemen.
