12/06/2009 - College PREP - McCook, IL Humberto is a young OF with a small frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature, adding muscle mass. Foot speed is near average as he will benefit by getting on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness for the next level. Feet are active but needs work in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls in the OF as he needs to work on getting behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target. Defensive abilities and arm strength are well below average in the OF as he needs to get on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength with carry on throws. At the plate, Tapia has well below average abilities and power through a balanced approach. He makes consistent contact but has some mechanical flaws that are hindering him from reaching his full potential at the plate with grades improving quickly with instruction and adjustments at the plate. With 2 years to further develop, Humberto has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
