Scouting Report
: Athletic and well-built, Sumoza signed for a big bonus out of Venezuela in mid-2004.  Gifted athlete, still very raw.  Shows the potential to be a five-tool player, but needs a lot of refinement.  High power potential. Above average speed.  Strikes out too much, still has some holes in his swing.  Hits from a slightly open stance. Keeps his hands around his helmet. Swing tends to get a bit too long and he can jam himself.  In the field, Sumoza has above average range, a passable glove, and a decent arm.  Overall, he has a ton of potential, but still a long way to go.
