2.12.17 - Barranca has a solid frame at 5-foot-11, 185-pounds. He hits from a balanced setup with a slight leg lift to footstrike. Barranca has a slight uphill bat path with average bat speed. His swing is similar from both sides of the plate. Barranca's lower half stays on the backside and he will sometimes work uphill. He has an exit velocity of 80 mph from the left and 78 mph from the right. Barranca has a good approach, sound actions on balls in the outfield, clean hands, and smooth exchange. He works through through the ball well. From the infield, Barranca shows lateral movement with clean hands and exchange. He has longer arm action, and creates some arm speed from an average arm from a high ¾ slot. He has an outfield velocity of 79 with infield velocity of 78. Barranca projects more at a corner position.
1/16/16 5-foot-11, 180-pound switch-hitter showcased a 77 mph bat exit velocity and a flat barrel path from the right side of the plate with a leg lift stride. Barranca displayed a bit longer swing from the left side and a tendency to lose his front side early with a bat exit velocity of 81 mph. The sophomore ran a 7.20 60-yard dash and showed 73 mph arm strength across the diamond. Barranca's frame and skill set project him as a 2B/3B at the next level.
11/1/14 Barranca is a switch-hitter who ran a 7.12 60-yard dash. Defensively, his 70-mph arm strength will limit him to second base until it improves, although his speed and quick feet would play in the outfield as well. From the left side of the plate, he incorporates a quick, lift-and-replace stride that takes him from square to closed and lays the bat flat behind him to launch. From the right side, he uses a similar, albeit more controlled stride, and spins a little bit, which could be helped by incorporating his backside more into his swing. Barranca worked around the ball with a pull-oriented approach from both sides. His bat speed and ability to drive the baseball (72-mph exit velocity) should improve as he adds strength to his 5-foot-9, 170-pound frame.
