Ratings subject to change
early scouts views on the top 60 draft prospects for 2013.
Some of these guys will lose their tag as A potential players. This is a great group of young HS talent here. Guys like McCullers and Lopes have nice bloodlines. McCullers dad was a former pitcher and Lopes older brother is in the Giants farm system.
Polished pitchers from the college level are almost cant miss guys in Appel, Gausman, and Barrett.
Kayden Porter a huge 18 year old righty from Utah has potential to be an A type of player by the time draft rolls around.
This draft is loaded with some high end middle infield (MIF) players. Diekroger, Marrero, and the high schooler Bregman are safe quality picks and will be off the board in the first 10-15 picks in my opinion.
Very nice.. looks to be a nice draft class.
In comparison to the 2012 draft class this class has lower contact ratings by almost 3 points vs each handedness. However power numbers are way due to some big thumpers in this class. Plate vision and discipline are way down as well as the power hitters in this class are strikeout prone.
On the defensive side, arm strength, fielding and speed are all up. With fielding seeing the biggest increase.
The pitchers all have comparable fastballs as their top pitch so we can compare their velocity and control and what we see is that velocity is down almost a whole mph, but control of the pitch is up by almost 3 points.
as more information is gathered keep an eye on the chart as things will change.

The Toronto Blue Jays have sent several scouts to watch P Mark Appel and OF Anthony Alford. They have the top pick in the draft and are narrowing down their selection. Appel seems like a good fit but the Jays have flexibility as they have the first pick in the Rule 5 draft at season's end. Alford is also a top rated HS Quarterback in Mississippi, with big time offers from Alabama, LSU, and South Carolina among many others.
