I would like to start off by announcing that Sjkqw a.k.a Stephen has been appointed my assistant scouting director. He and I will work together to draft the best players possible.
Today I will present you a list of players Stephen and I have come up with that we could possibly target with the first pick.
Brett Eibner- Jr. RHP/CF Arkansas 12/2/1988 6'4" 210 lbs. Bats Righty He throws 95 mph with sink. Projectable slider that needs a little work. Beginning to use a changeup. Can also play centerfield but teams like him better as a pitcher.
Anthony Ranaudo-Jr. RHP LSU 9/9/1988 6'7" 230 lbs. A new twitter report claims that he may drop to the Yankees, but I find this unlikely especially in a mock draft with fans. Ranaudo doesn’t have an overpowering fastball, instead relying on a very deceptive delivery and great command of all his pitches. Ranaudo keeps hitters off-balance with a breaking ball that he can locate for strikes, while often using his 93 mph fastball.
Chevez Clarke-Sr. CF Marietta HS (Georgia) 1/9/92 6'0" 185 lbs. Switch Hitter Has a lot of speed that will make him an eventual base stealer. Good power from both sides of the plate. Strong armed.
Micah Gibbs-Jr. C LSU 7/27/1988 5'11" 215 lbs. Bats Righty
Great defensive catcher. Not a bad hitter by any means, but it still needs work. Bad speed for a catcher.
Jesse Hahn-Jr. RHP Virginia Tech 7/30/1989 6'5" 200 lbs. Reached 99 mph in the past, but touches 95 mph primarily. Seriously imrpoved command, but delivery still needs work. Two curveballs both used for strikeouts. He is viewed as a relief pitcher.
Kevin Gausman-Sr. RHP Grandview HS (Colorado) 12/14/1989 6'4" 185 lbs. 95 mph fastball with no movement and awful secondary offerings. Needs a lot of work, but could pay dividends if you trust the guys who will teach him.
James Paxton- LHP Grand Prairie AirHogs 11/6/88 6'4" 215 lbs. Fastball and slider can be plus pitches in the future. Also has an changeup but doesn't use it much.
Sammy Solis-Jr LHP San Diego 8/10/1988 6'5" 228 lbs. Has had back issues in the past. Has three good pitches that he has good command of, a fastball, curve, and changeup.
Aaron Sanchez- RHP Barstow HS (CA) 7/1/1992 6'3" 170 lbs. Tall and projectable. Has a good fastball already and should get even better in the future.
Kevin Gausman-RHP Grandview HS (CO) 12/14/1989 6'4" 185 lbs.
Has plus arm and projectable. Has been inconsistent this spring.
Tyrell Jenkins- RHP Henderson HS (TX) 7/20/1992 6'4" 180 lbs
A great athlete who played three sports in highschool. Has a commitment to Baylor. Raw as a pitcher but not that bad.
Yordy Cabrera- SS Lakeland HS (FL) 9/3/90 6'4" 190 lbs. Bats Rightly
Has raw tools, especially good power but doesn't recognize pitches that well so that might hinder the power. Might have to move from shortstop.
