Carlos A Cortes, Ambidextrous Player

Carlos A Cortes

Oviedo HS, Florida (Class of 2016)

College commitment: South Carolina

Height/Weight: 5'8",  185 lbs
Positions: 2B, OF, LHP
Bats: Left
Throws: Both

Velocity: FB 85 mph in 2014

Carlos Cortez bats left-handed and can throw with both hands, according to Perfect Game USA. At 5'8 and 185 lbs, he's a quick  fielder who mainly plays 2B (righty) plus a little OF (lefty). He said that he did not pitch in high school this past year, but has the ability to throw with both arms. His fastball touched 85 mph. 

He looks like a good second baseman in a skills video, and I think that's the position he projects at the next level.

Under Armour All-America Game Spotlight: Carlos Cortes
June 17, 2015 by Teddy Cahill

Cortes played center field this spring, but considers himself more of a second baseman, and that is where he will likely play at the next level. He is committed to South Carolina, which he said impressed him with the quality of its facilities.

Watch the skills video of Cortes playing RF lefty, 2B righty and pitching lefty.
