After a senior season in which Lewis hit .377 with four homers and 25 stolen bases, the shortstop was named the California Baseball Gatorade Player of the Year.


Lewis was taken with the top selection in 2017 by the Minnesota Twins and is currently ranked as the No. 5 prospect for 2019.

The shortstop is reporting to Fort Myers, Fla. on Friday to start Spring Training 2019.
