2014 MLB Draft: Mid-Atlantic Region

New, 6 comments

Not much impact but a handful of guys who could be solid regulars in the majors and a few prep guys who could move up after three years of school.

The Mid-Atlantic has some interesting talent but no true impact talent. Bukauskas could be an impact guy but his track record is short and he says he wants to go to college. I'm not sold on that. I see it as a bargaining chip. Derek Fisher has the most impact potential but he's a question since his tools have not played while he has been at Virginia. Here is the interactive map if you'd like to see where some of these guys are located geographically.

If you appreciate my work and want more of it now and in the future, support me by purchasing the 2014 MLB Draft Book. It will be available between May 19th and May 30th. The longer it takes, the more that will be in it. It's $4.99. PDF only. Last year it was 101 pages and will be larger this year with articles and information.

Name POS hi lvl Floor Ceiling Bats Throws Height Weight Birthdate
Derek Fisher LF JR 45 55 Left Right 6'3" 205 8/21/93
All potential. Swing and miss issuesand lacks game power. Shows it all at times. Defensively limited by actions but not tools. Can run and throw, just inconsistent. Star on paper, question in reality.
Jacob Bukauskas P HS 30 60 Right Right 6'1" 195 10/11/96
A 2015 pick until this spring. Reclassification and velo jump make him a top 100 pick. Up to 97 with average or a tick above slider and change. If he was 90, he'd be a college arm. Still might be but 97 is tempting. He's sent a letter out saying he's going to school.
Mike Papi LF JR 40 55 Left Right 6'2" 190 9/19/92
Great approach at the plate. Could hit for above average power with strength but I don't know if it will work. I don't have a good feeling but he could prove me very wrong. Kind of a train wreck in LF on occasion but average potential is there.
Nick Howard P JR 40 55 Right Right 6'4" 215 4/6/93
Up to 94 without proper warm up on occasion. Great breaking ball. Shows a change. Best closer in the country. I'd try to start him, though he worked 90-92 as a starter when I saw him as a sophomore. Great demeanor on the mound.
Devon Fisher C HS 30 55 Right Right 6'1" 200 5/1/96
Excellent defensive catcher. Good catch and throw skills. Solid at blocking pitches. Quick wrists and good bat speed but they work independantly form the rest of his body. Needs to work on timing but there is excellent potential at the plate as well.
Jack Gerstenmaier 3B HS 30 55 Right Right 6'1" 201 5/5/95
Really simple smooth swing. Good line drive stroke. Solid arm, good speed. Could be a solid 3B or a LF if he can't stick at SS. He may even work at 2B.
Blake Bivens P HS 35 50 Right Right 6'2" 205 8/11/95
Good low 90's righty. Three solid average pitches but likely not much room for improvement other than command. Mid-rotation ceiling.
Mark Zagunis C JR 35 50 Right Right 6'1" 190 2/5/93
Solid tools across the board. Good bat to ball ability with professional approach. Can hit one out on occasion. Good athelte for a catcher. Atheltic enough to handle a corner OF spot.
Jake Stinnett P JR 35 50 Right Right 6'4" 200 4/25/92
Having a great season this spring. He is flying up draft boards. I'm not a beliver. Low slot and current arm action won't allow the command to be what it needs. 90-94 MPH fastball at times and nice slider may work out of the pen.
Jeff Harding P HS 30 50 Right Right 5'11" 170 7/21/96
Short righty with explosive fastball and plus curveball. Height makes people think bullpen but change gives him a solid shot at starting. Reminds me a bit of Marcus Stroman.
Hunter Williams 1B HS 30 50 Left Left 6'3" 215 2/7/96
Big power potential. Good bat but with some swing and miss. He's a decent LHP and could play both ways at UNC. I expect him to get to campus.
Branden Cogswell SS JR 40 45 Left Right 6'2" 180 1/12/1993
Good defensive middle infielder. Line drive approach with minimal power. Could be a utility guy.
Charlie Cody 3B HS 30 50 Right Right 6'1" 180 11/21/95
Kind of a slow trigger on his swing but really impacts the ball when he hits it. Keeps his hands too high and the swing gets long. If he improves this, he could have an excellent bat. Plus speed. Average arm for 3B.
Derek Casey P HS 25 50 Right Right 6'1" 185 2/16/96
Harsh delivery creates low 90's fastball. Quiet the delivery and he could be an impressive pitcher. Slider works. Bet he's a top 3 round guy in three years.
Brodie Leftridge CF HS 25 50 Right Right 6'1" 170 2/20/96
Really skinny athelte. Good swing but needs strength. Good arm. Plus runner. Interesting toolsy player.
Brandon Downes LF JR 35 45 Right Right 6'3" 200 9/29/92
Good athlete. Solid defender in the OF. Swing can get long at times. Tentative this spring. Doesn't seem to be identiying pitches well. Has a little draftitis I think.
Ashton Perritt P JR 35 45 Right Right 6'3" 195
Low 90's fastball that can hit 94. Has a solid slider. Reliever.
Artie Lewicki P JR 35 45 Right Right 6'3" 210 4/8/1992
Decent arm in the low 90's at his best. Senior sign.
Troy Stokes CF HS 30 45 Right Right 5'11" 180 2/2/96
Easy swing, quick bat. Simple controlled bat. Quiet swing. Quick wrists. Not a lot of power but good bat to ball. Very good CF. Weak arm.
Tommy Doyle P HS 30 45 Right Right 6'6" 215 5/1/96
Has the standard Virginia delivery. Good low 90's fastball. Good potential for more.
