I've watched 20 seconds of video. Color me intrigued. A 17 y.o. SS taking a ball out to right center like that is very interesting.

From 2017, Perfect Game scouting report:

Quote

LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT

 

2017 PG UNDERCLASS ALL AMERICAN GAMES  

 
Darell Hernaiz is a 2019 SS/2B with a 6-0 150 lb. frame from El Paso, TX who attends Americas HS. Slender young athletic build, lots of room to get stronger. Second base tools on defense, has quick feet and stays balanced well, has smooth actions and funnels well, soft hands, arm strength is presently short unless moving through the ball. Right handed hitter, hits from an even stance with a deep hand load, loose swing with a mid field to opposite field approach, steers the barrel to the ball, high contact swing, should continue to improve as he gets stronger. Verbal commitment to Texas Tech.

Really like this pick.  Good value here in round 5 taking a 17 year old while so many others are already taking senior signs and reliever profiles.  Have to point out the lack of ranking on this prospect yet multiple sources chiming in with a third to fifth round buzz. Trust your scouts.  Understand there are consensus seekers like Callis, but lots of organizations also putting out a lot of mis-information.
