2013 Indians 14th round pick: CF Silento Sayles

In the 14th round of the 2013 Draft the Cleveland Indians select center fielder Silento Sayles from Port Gibson High School (MS).

Born: 03/28/1995 - Height: 5'9" - Weight: 185 - Bats: Right - Throws: Right

Pre-draft ranks:

Baseball America: 457th

Jeff Ellis: Sayles' game is all about speed as his speed is the highest graded tool the Indians will draft this year. He stole 103 bases this year, a national record. He was at 96 before his final game which tied the record then stole seven in his final game. He was caught only once all year, so he is the definition of highly productive. It is his only tool of note, and the question is can he be turned into a super speed utility guy. In a perfect word his game is refined and he could be a starting shortstop. He should be signable as he is not committed to a four year school. Being from Mississippi you can expect to hear a lot of comparisons to Billy Hamilton.

Congratulations Silento! I am so proud of you, but most of all I am proud of your mom and dad for being active in your life! I know your mom and dad and I can tell you that there is no mistake that you are good. Your dad was an excellent baseball player. He was a pitcher and I promise you he was one of the best to come through Port Gibson. I Salute your parents for doing a wonderful job with you and I Salute you for being the young respectful man that you are. I remember talking to you in the barber shop and I came home and told my wife about how respectable you were and how much I liked your demeanor. Stay hungry even when you are full, always keep GOD first and do what you do. You are an inspiration for others in this community. We have a lot of talent and hopefully others will follow in your path and take advantage of their talents...
