is an impressive athlete but if I were on his side as an advisor, a parent or a coach, I'd get him out to right field as soon as I can. He could be a good catcher, but he needs a lot of work back there and the bat is too valuable to slow his progress down with that, in my opinion. His arm is a rocket. He has enough hit ability for the power to translate.
is a big time power hitter who impacts the ball with a long, leveraged swing. He is the kind of guy that could be a poster boy for a team in the future with that big smile and over the fence power. Comparing him to recent draft picks, I'd put him in the same class as Carlos Correa but what I saw of Correa at this game a few years ago, Correa made a stronger impression.
is an elite athlete. He has that loose swagger that I've only seen a few times, most memorably in Randy Moss. He just has that aura. His speed is plus-plus. He has a really good arm, good defensive ability and his power projects plus as well. Defensively, he needs to improve but has the athleticism to be a true five tool player.
looks surprisingly like Michael Gettys, facially. Chavis is smaller but they look a lot alike. There are a few differences. Chavis is slower, average to slightly above average. His arm isn't as strong and he plays 3B. The biggest difference in my eyes is the hit ability. I'm confident he is a very good hitter and has impressive power. He is a tightly wound, muscular hitter. He isn't an imposing physical player but he has star potential.
can hit. Man, can he hit. Vallot is a good defensive catcher and should be able to stick back there. He isn't a burner, so it would be best if he can stick behind the dish, but the bat will play anywhere.
has all the tools. He is fast, extremely good defensively and has the family rocket attached to the upper right side of his body. He has more pop than his brother. He strikes the ball better than Dee and should be a well above average shortstop offensively and defensively.
has an unusual stance, swing and skill set but he sure can hit. He makes solid contact all the time, grinds and plays hard. Even though he doesn't have a solid fit defensively, he should be a soild defensive player in an up the middle position.
is a powerfully built athlete. He reminds me a lot of Torii Hunter. He has definite star potential if he commits to baseball but he is an very high level football recruit as well.
is a high-end bat. He only got one official at bat, so his ability didn't show in this game, but he could be the best prep bat in the 2014 draft. He has plus hit ability, which allows his plus power to play up. He has enough speed and athleticism that he isn't strapped to 1B and his arm would be an asset in left field or right field.
is a pure power guy. His power is his carrying tool. He has a short, quick swing. He has good arm strength and profiles as a right fielder. While he isn't going to profile as an up the middle guy, that bat will be enough for a corner.
didn't show overly well in this game. If this was your only viewing of him, he wouldn't leave an impact but trust me, he is am impact player in the Chase Utley mold.
oozes tools. His speed is probably a 70 on the 20-80 scale, as is his arm. His power is above average and he can play center field. I'm not sold on his hit ability but the tools are crazy and that will get him off the draft board quickly. His toolset isn't dissimilar to Bubba Starling a few years back and I have similar concerns with Gettys.
is a high waisted, unusual swinging hitter. He has a lot of moving parts and creates a lot of power. He isn't a stellar athlete like many of the players in this game and he has a lot of unique qualities that set him apart from a typical prospect. As unusual of a player that Hunter Pence is, Kel Johnson is much like him. Physically, he looks similar. Facially, he looks like him. He could be a similar player.
is a huge individual, standing 6'6" or so, with a muscular frame. He looks the part. He looks like a power hitter but when he steps into the box, he hunches over and that saps his power. I don't think his hit tool will work until he changes his stance and he won't hit for the power he owns until he hits. He is a boom or bust talent with a ceiling of Justin Morneau at his best.
is a player I want to talk about but I don't know really what to say about him. He has a lot of power. He's a good athlete. He's an intriguing player because he's from Canada and hasn't had the reps many of his peers have. I'm not sure where he will end up next June but he has the tools to end up near the top of the heap if they all come together.
continues to underwhelm me. He has all the tools to impact the game on both sides of the game but I haven't even seen flashes of anything that allow me to project any more than a solid defensive, below average offensive third baseman.
is all projection. He is a long, lean athlete that could be just about anything from a 4th outfielder to a superstar center fielder. He will need time to develop but the skills are there to be a player to watch.
is a big, Richie Sexson-sized hitter. He has good bat to ball ability and will hit for a lot of power once he figures it out.
