Scouting Reports:

Perfect Game (2013)

Gavin Garay is a 2015 SS/3B with a 6-2 195 lb. frame from LaGrangeville, NY who attends John F Kennedy Catholic High School. Tall, athletically built infielder with room to fill out. Ran a 7.10 60 yard dash. Moves well on the infield, shows carry on his throws. Footwork and hands work smooth. Bats right-handed, works from a narrow, upright stance. Shows good rhythm at the plate, shoulders tilt at times. Has a sound, up the middle approach and barrels up line drives with consistency. Stays short to the ball. Advanced approach for a young player. Good student.

Prep Baseball Report (2015)

Gavin Garay, 1B, Kennedy, 2015 – Didn’t have his best game against Iona, but hit two homers later in the week and definitely has some power as a right-handed hitter. A big, strong kid who gets around on fastballs and likes to pull. He has solid hands and made some nice scoops at first, which is probably his position at the next level. He’s played some third, but might not have enough range to play there in college. He’s committed to St. John’s.

 

Thoughts:

Probably signable and a kingsport or Gulf Coast League 1B
