2012 MLB Draft Prospects By Region: Southeast

Byron Buxton, of, Appling County HS (via BaseballAmericaVideo)


Many of the best players in this years' draft are from this region. College arms and high school bats are the strength here.

My Floor and Ceiling ratings are given to help place them into tiers. This way you can see how they stack up against each other. You can find my rating on nearly every prospect you can think of here to compare as to what type of player they are or who they are similar to. The grades change as prospects are ever evolving but this is as good of a way to categorize them as I have found.

If you have specific questions about a player or if I am missing someone you think should be here, let me know. I'd like to use these as discussion topics to talk about the players here instead of posting one by one. This is a learning process, so let me know how I can improve this as well.
