Yasser showed smooth fielding abilities during the Pre-Season. He has a quick 1st step, sure hands, and good body control. He fields out front, works the double play well, and he throws with accuracy across the diamond. Offensively, Yasser has a square / balanced set-up, good barrel accuracy, and a middle approach. He has good hand-eye coordination, is short through the ball, and he flashes some bat speed.

Yasser is a small SS with a strong lower half that will graduate in 2015. Feet are active / aggressive as he attacks ground balls, playing through well while displaying soft / sure hands. He moves well laterally, displaying range in the MIF. Throws are accurate, flashing carry as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, Santana shows a balanced / athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to load more and use his lower half. With 2 years to further develop, Yasser has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
