Discussion in 'The Sandlot - The Show '15 OL' started by Diddy81, Apr 22, 2012.
Here's what scouts say about: Byron Buxton CF 6'1 175 High School There's a broad consensus around Buxton as the best player in this draft and a legitimate No. 1 overall pick, as he earns comparisons to a number of other players drafted in that top spot. He has all tools, an 80 runner on the 20-80 scouting scale with an 80 arm (reportedly 95-98 mph off the mound last week) and big future power. But he's playing against poor high school competition in rural Georgia and has yet to homer this spring, so he's not without his risks.
Mike Zunino C 6'2 215 Florida A true catcher who has an unorthodox style at the plate but hits, uses the whole field and has power is a pretty valuable commodity, and he carries less risk than the three high-upside pitchers ranked right behind him. Most scouts seem to think he doesn't get past Seattle at No. 3.
Mark Appel RHP 6'5 215 Stanford The stuff is there, and the results are better, but the lack of deception in his delivery combined with a habit of leaving pitches (especially his changeup) up in the zone make him more hittable than a guy with this stuff should be.
SS 6'4 190 High School
On track to be the highest-drafted Puerto Rican player in history as an athletic 17-year-old who projects to hit and hit for power but probably ends up at third base in pro ball. For comparison, he has more offensive upside than Francisco Lindor, who was drafted with the eighth pick last year in a stronger crop. Correa's also a dark horse to go No. 1 overall.
great job sdid22
Very nice job sdid22
This type of content brings a ton to the league.
Keep it up
Arguably the best arm in the draft was taken by the Toronto Blue Jays. Will they be able to sign the college stand out who has a 6,000,000 dollar asking price????
