2013 MLB Draft: Atlantic Region Report

New, 33 comments

The Atlantic region isn't as strong this year as it will be next year but still has impact talent at the top and solid depth of potential big leaguers.

Moran is the cream of the crop here but the top 6 are all first round capable and if anyone in the top 10 went in the first round, I would not be surprised. They all have interesting tools or skills that make them worthy of that type of choice in one way or another.

1. Colin Moran, 3B, JR, 45/65: Elite hitter. Maybe a 1B but has "it." Full Profile

2. Nick Ciuffo, C, HS, 35/60: great all around player. Good defense, good hitter. Good leader. Full Profile

3. Hunter Harvey, P, HS, 35/55: big arm, good secondaries. Bryan's son.

4. Matthew McPhearson, OF, HS, 30/55: Game changing speed. I like the bat more all the time.

5. Andy McGuire, 3B, HS, 30/55: Everything you want in a prospect. Plus defender at 3b, might try him at ss.

6. Connor Jones, P, HS, 30/55: Really fast delivery bothers me. Like the stuff, though

7. Akeem Bostick, P, HS, 25/55: Sleeper. Great athlete. Up to 93, more in there.

8. Kent Emanuel, P, JR, 45/55: Polished lefty with average velocity, great pitchability. Full Profile

9. Aaron Blair, P, JR, 35/50: Good three pitch mix, 90-92 fastball up to 94

10. Chad Pinder, 3B, JR, 40/50: great defender, good bat. Not a profile 3B, may work at SS.

11. Weston Wilson, SS, HS, 30/50: Leveraged swing. Good power potential. Good athlete

12. Kevin Trader, P, HS, 30/50: Short, up to 92, tight slider. Good gut feeling about this guy.

13. K.J. Woods, OF, HS, 25/55: big guy. Looks like a tight end out there. Keon Barnum type

14. Ryder Jones, 3B, HS, 25/55: Very good athlete. swing issues.

15. Austin Nicely, P, HS, 25/50: Smooth lefty arm. Low 90's fastball

16. Tyler Horan, OF, JR, 30/50: Power guy, 1b likely

17. Alex Haines, P, JR, 20/55: Up to 96 but one pitch guy

18. Jacob May, OF, JR, 40/45: Polished low upside cf

19. Ryan Cordell, OF, JR, 25/50: Raw athlete coming along well

20. Logan Koch, C, HS, 25/50: Probably college guy but could improve at S.C.

21. A.J. Bogucki, P, HS, 25/50: Good build, loose and easy up to 92. good slider

22. Cory Thompson, P, HS, 25/50: Athletic. Up to 94. More of a thrower than a pitcher right now. Good hitter as well.

23. Jack Roberts, P, HS, 25/50: Low 3/4 delivery. Up to 92

24. Shon Carson, OF, SO, 25/50: Running back build

25. Kevin Jordan, OF, JR, 20/50: Needs work in all areas of his game but has a lot of tools.

26. Alex Bostic, P, HS, 20/50: Athletic, up to 90

27. Bryce Harman, 1B, HS, 20/50: Huge kid. Big power

28. Thomas Rogers, P, HS, 20/50: Easy 89 MPH. Late round target

29. Erich Knab, P, J1, 20/50: up to 94 but secondaries lag behind.

30. Jae Roberts, 3B, HS, 20/50: Short and stocky. Whippy swing but good power potential. Good athlete, tools.

31. Zach Rice, P, HS, 25/45: Long arm action but can hit 89

32. Taylor Widener, OF, HS, 25/45: Good two way guy.

33. Alec Bettinger, P, HS, 25/45: Can hit 90. Small but athletic

34. Tyler Barnette, P, JR, 35/45: Command is an issue. secondary's are below average

35. Matt Roberts, C, JR, 35/45: Good d, some pop but not a good hitter

36. Eli White, SS, HS, 25/45: Could be a very good college player. If he moves to 3B, he should be plus defensively.

37. Forrest Koumas, P, JR, 35/40: Good mound presence. Upper 80's. Short and stocky. 78-84 slider works well

38. Tray Roberts, P, HS, 20/50: Athlete. Poor pitch recognition and swing needs work.
