2012 MLB Draft: By the Ages Part One

New, 20 comments

As a take off of the study Rany Jazayerli did , I looked at ages for high school draft picks for the 2012 draft. I looked at both hitters and pitcher though. The age listed is as of 7-21-12, the cut off date for draft eligible sophomores. Here are the youngest of the bunch:

Name POS School Commitment Age Birthday
Giovanni Hernandez C/RHP Heath, TX No school   17.2 5/20/1995
Sean McLaughlin OF/RHP Johns Creek GA Northview    Georgia    17.2 5/16/1995
Lewis Brinson P/OF Coral Springs, Margate, FL Florida    17.2 5/8/1995
Corey Seager SS Northwest Cabarrus, Kannapolis, NC South Carolina 17.3 4/27/1995
Trey Williams 3B Valencia, Saugus, CA Pepperdine 17.4 3/9/1995
Daniel Starwalt RHP El Cajon Stanford 17.5 2/7/1995
Nick  Travieso P American Heritage, FL Miami    17.5 1/31/1995
Tyler Pike LHP/OF Winter Haven FL Winter Haven   Florida State 17.5 1/26/1995
Jameis Winston OF/P Hueytown, Hueytown, AL Florida State   17.6 1/6/1995
Kyle Carter OF Columbus, Midland, GA Georgia 17.6 1/5/1995
Carlos Correa SS Santa Isabel PR PR Baseball Academy  No school   17.8 9/22/1994
Steven Golden OF Hayward, CA No school   17.9 9/12/1994
Cody Poteet P San Diego Christian HS, Bonita, CA UCLA    18 7/30/1994
Walker Buehler RHP/IF/OF Lexington KY Henry Clay    Vanderbilt    18 7/28/1994
Anthony Alford OF Petal, MS No school   18 7/20/1994
Duane Underwood RHP Pope HS, Marietta, Ga. Georgia 18 7/20/1994
Chase Mullins LHP Paris KY Bourbon County    Kentucky    18 7/19/1994
Carson Kelly 3B/RHP Westview HS, Portland, OR No school   18 7/14/1994


Some very interesting names are listed here. Carlos Correa maybe next seasons Francisco Lindor. He has massive potential and could get top 10 consideration. Considering Winston and Alford are also two sport guys, it gives them leniency for being a little less polished. They have a few extra months to catch up even though Alford may not need it at the plate. Brinson, Seager and Williams are also interesting as high upside talents. Definately some good names to watch if you like what his study showed.

More to come..
