*Redshirted due to injury

Rob Segedin is a hulking third baseman from Tulane University in New Orleans. Segedin came to Tulane from Northern Valley Regional High School in Demarest, New Jersey, which is directly across the river from Yonkers, New York in northern New Jersey. Recruited as a two-way player, he was considered fringe draft material out of high school in 2007, and he went undrafted and headed for Tulane. He immediately started for the Green Wave, showing solid potential with the bat and his arm, as he had closer arm strength. However, a back injury and shoulder issues in his throwing shoulder ended up keeping him out of action in 2009 as a sophomore, and he ended up redshirting after playing just a few contests. He returned this spring with a vengeance, though, and he’s considered one of the top collegiate corner infield bats in the draft class. He has the potential to be a starting third baseman at the next level on the strength of his bat, though he needs to improve his defense and power to see that come to pass. As it stands, he has a potential above-average hit tool with gap power, and his raw power is only average despite his big size. He doesn’t try hard to drive the ball with loft, instead being content with line drives around the field. He’s a below-average runner, which limits his defense to being fringe-average, and there’s some thought he might need to move to first base in the long run. However, he has a plus arm, and it fits best at the hot corner. As a draft-eligible sophomore, his signability is always going to be a question, but he should go in the second or third round and sign for a slightly over slot bonus.
