The 2012 draft looks very solid in a couple areas. From what I have seen so far, which is less than I would like with my schedule, this years prep hitting crop is going to be strong. While the college hitters look to be lackluster while being led by players like Kenny Diekroger, Deven Marrero and Victor Roache, the high school ranks are filled with 5 tool potential up the middle players. Starting behind the dish is Stryker Trahan. He isn't a typical catcher, although he looks like a typical catcher. Strongly built and powerful, he has more speed than you would expect and is an above average runner. He can also crush the baseball. Power is his game but he is also a solid defender. Up the middle is big SS Carlos Correa who may outgrow the position but has good actions there right now and can really swing the bat. Gavin Ceccihini should stick at short and can really hit as well. He won't have big power but he has a great line drive swing and is a plus runner. At 2B, Alex Bregman is a gritty, smart player that has average tools that play up because of his style of play. In CF is a cluster of toolsy players. Nick Williams is very raw but gets comparisons to many great outfielders. I've even heard a Griffey Jr comparison, but that is awfully lofty. Trey Williams is right there with him in regards to talent and raw ability. Lewis Brinson, Byron Buxton and David Dahl look like they could have 5 tool ability as well.
