2013 MLB Draft: Texas/Oklahoma Region

New, 21 comments

The likely first or second overall pick, Jonathan Gray, leads this list. The prep bats are strong and the college arms have more potential beyond what they have shown in college. There could be #2/3 starters ranked as low as the 20's on this list if they can correct flaws and develop secondaries and/or command. It's an interesting region.

1. Jonathan Gray, P, JR, 45/70: starter who can sit 97-100 with knockout slider. Elite arm.

2. Jonathan Denney, C, HS, 40/70: huge potential with the bat. Mixed reviews on defense but bat will play anywhere.

3. Kohl Stewart, P, HS, 30/70: Potential for three plus pitches. Has had shoulder issues due to football

4. Billy McKinney, OF, HS, 35/55: pure bat. Good power potential. Good athlete. comp derek fisher

5. Austin Kubitza, P, JR, 40/55: went from 95-96 to 88-91 with sink. Slider is very good. Could be interesting in short bursts or with right coaching.

6. Drew Ward, 3B, HS, 30/65: big power potential. Good arm, good athlete. May be a 1B.

7. Dillon Overton, P, JR, 40/50: Solid three pitch mix. Very good command but no knockout pitch.

8. Cavan Biggio, 3B, HS, 30/55: plus hit tool. Good athlete. Not sure where he fits defensively

9. Andrew Mitchell, P, JR, 35/55: big fastball. Nice breaking ball. Solid mid rotation starter. Could be a closer.

10. Cody Gunter, 3B, J1, 35/55: big power bat. Good defnse at 3B. Strong arm.

11. Corey Knebel, P, JR, 35/55: up to 96. arm action is rough and secondary's need work.

12. Jason Hursh, P, JR, 30/50: big arm. TJ survivor still coming back. secondary's need work.

13. Kramer Robertson, SS, HS, 35/50: very good defensive ss. I like the bat but it needs work.

14. Casey Shane, P, HS, 35/50: Potential for two plus pitches

15. Andrew Dunlap, P, HS, 30/55: Mid 90's arm. Moved to mound but was power bat as a C. Sleeper potential here.

16. Alex Gonzalez, P, JR, 35/50: I haven't seen him pitch. Could be a 1st rounder according to some.

17. Teddy Stankiewicz, P, J1, 35/50: Plus fastball and breaking ball potential. Change needs work. Breaking ball needs consistency

18. Thomas Hatch, P, HS, 35/55: low 90's at his best but nice change and breaking ball.

19. Hunter Dozier, 3B, JR, 30/50: impressive athlete. Plus arm. Could profile well at 3B

20. Nick Buckner, OF, HS, 30/50: very good athlete. Raw but a lot of potential with the bat

21. Sheldon Neuse, SS, HS, 30/55: Solid hitter, average power, good arm. Not sure if that plays at a corner.

22. David Gates, P, J2, 25/50: mid-90's with his fastball. The rest needs work

23. Trey Masek, P, JR, 40/45: Low 90's with solid secondary's but no out pitch. Back of rotation guy

24. Nick Banks, OF, HS, 25/50: good athlete with solid bat. Good power potential. Two way guy as well

25. Mark Ecker, P, HS, 35/55: Like the low 70's curveball. Low 90's fastball with potential for more

27. Jake Johansen, P, SR, 30/55: huge arm up to 98. poor command

28. Andrew Kelley, P, HS, 25/55: giant. Short quick arm. Tons of projection.

29. Tres Barrera, 3B, HS, 30/55: impressive power potential. Hits the ball hard. Not sure where he plays. Could use him at Texas.
