Perfect Game Profile

Santiago is the son of the 20 year Major League veteran of the same name, but the younger Santiago is a different type of player with a shorter, more compact build and the ability to hit from the left side. Not surprisingly, Santiago especially stands out on defense, where he eliminates the running game with his strong arm and quick release. His biggest development over the past year has been offensively, where he is starting to hit with big pull side power. Santiago and Touki Toussaint form one of the country’s top batteries at Coral Springs Christian Academy.
