Gerrit Cole Rank: 1 UCLA, Junior Height: 6'4", Weight: 220 Position: RHP DOB: 09/08/1990 This will be Cole's second time through a draft after being drafted by the Yankees in the first round in 08. He went to UCLA and pitched very well. He only helped his stock now. He goes out there with a fastball between 92 and 99 Mph with it usually in the mid 90's range. He has a hard slider that is somewhere between 88 and 90 Mph. Recently Cole has started to struggle, but i still believe he is a top 3 prospect.
Anthony Rendon Rank: 2 Rice, Junior Height: 6'0", Weight: 190 Position: 3B DOB: 06/06/1990 Rendon is the whole pakage, this guy can hit for power and for Average. He has a strong arm and plays his postion very well defensivly. The only one tool not above average on Anthony is his speed, and he still has alright speed better then people give him credit. The one thing keeping Rendon from being the 1st overall pick possibly is the fact that over the years he has had a couple of injuries.
Danny Hultzen Rank: 3 Virginia, Junior Height: 6'2", Weight: 200 Position: LHP DOB: 11/28/1989 Hultzen is a very good prospect that just keeps moving up. His fastball is around 95Mph with a good changup and a slider. All of his pitches have very good natural sink to them something scouts and coachs really like. Also Danny has very good accuracy with his pitches for such a young age.
Dylan Bundy Rank: 4 Owassa HS (Okla.), Senior Height: 6'1", Weight: 200 Position: RHP DOB: 11/15/1992 Bundy was the top ranked high school arm in the draft a couple months ago and has done nothing but rise his stock. He pitched very well all year for his oklahoma high school and has show a fastball in the high 90's around 98 Mph , with a good curvball and slider. He has a changeup also that he started to use effectivly. His huge frame has really made scouts think this guy could be very special.
Bubba Starling Rank: 5 Gardner Edgerton (Kan.) HS, Senior Height: 6'4", Weight: 180 Position: OF DOB: 08/03/1992 Starling is truly a 5 tool player. These players dont come up to much anymore and are somewhat of a rare commodity, but Starling is truly a 5 tool player. With plus batting Avg and power he has all the needs with the bat. He possesis great speed on the base paths and a strong throwing arm.
