Scouting Report: Signed as a shortstop, Rijo moved to second base after making his pro debut. Hits from a wide-open stance, with his hands high, before taking big step to close to even in his stride. Quick hands, solid batspeed. Showed very good contact skills as a 17-year-old in the Gulf Coast League. Below-average present power with gap power potential. Tore his ACL just before signing, which dropped his projected bonus. Wore a large brace during his rookie season. Has above-average speed now that he is healthy. Shows the tools to become an excellent defender, but is prone to lazy mechanics and will tend to field balls off to the side that he has time to field in front. Otherwise shows good instincts. Son of a scout.
