  • CLE Starting Pitcher
    Clemmey is the classic 6-for-6 projectable prep southpaw that player development staffs dream about refining in their pitching labs. With a fastball that sits in the low-to-mid 90’s and a low-80’s breaking ball, he’s the type of left-hander that teams hope to mold into a future front-of-the-rotation headliner. There’s some risk he winds up in a relief role down the road, but the 18-year-old Vanderbilt commit is the most intriguing prospect to come out of Rhode Island, the smallest state in the nation, since fellow Bishop Hendricken alum – and current Twins manager – Rocco Baldelli two decades ago.
  • SF Shortstop
    Martin turned 19 in February and is one of the older prep prospects in the draft. He was a two-sport player at Eaton High School in Colorado where he also played quarterback, but baseball is where his future lies. The 6-foot-2 middle infielder still has a chance to fill out some, adding to his power potential from the left side of the plate. The question is how he’ll perform outside of Colorado, as well as where he’ll fit best defensively.
  • CIN Shortstop
    An elite speedster with an improving bat, Stafura represents an interesting lottery ticket for Reds in the early stages of the second round. The 18-year-old middle infielder is a long way off from the majors, but there’s plenty to work with here from a tools perspective and he could make a major impact for Reds down the road.
  • WAS 3rd Baseman
    Morales has a power-over-hit profile, which might be enough to carry him to the majors someday. He smacked 20 homers in his junior year at Miami, while slashing an eye-popping .408/.475/.713 across 61 games for the Hurricanes. However, with the good comes the bad. He takes huge swings, which can get him in trouble with strikeouts. He chases out of the zone regularly, and will need a strong player development staff to help him change his game. While Morales truly has a power over hit profile, he has improved his swing during his time at Miami, which should bring future success in professional ball.
  • DET Shortstop
    McGonigle is one of the best prep hitters in the class and arguably could be the best hitter in the entire class. His bat-to-ball skills are elite, and he consistently finds the barrel and can seemingly place the ball wherever he likes. While he hasn’t shown over-the-fence power, The 18-year-old middle infielder constantly racks up extra-base hits with his all-fields approach. He’s a fringy runner, so don’t expect too many stolen bases in his future. He currently plays shortstop but is most likely best suited for second base.
  • MIA Starting Pitcher
    White is considered the top left-hander (including both college and prep pitchers) available in this year’s draft class, ranking ahead of Kent State lefty Joe Whitman and southpaw Cameron Johnson (IMG Academy). The 18-year-old has the size, velocity, and arsenal to profile as a potential frontline pitcher down the road, though his command will be the key to getting him there. He’s a Vanderbilt commit and odds are he’ll have a high asking price, but as long as the Marlins can get him to sign he’ll be an impact addition to their organization.
  • MIN Starting Pitcher
    The 6-foot-5, 210-pound prep arm boasts three plus offerings and is one of the youngest pitchers in this year’s draft. He’s a Central Florida commit, but is expected to sign with Minnesota. There’s always a little bit of a lottery aspect to taking a high school arm, and Soto’s delivery is not squeaky clean, but the stuff is great and if he can command three pitches, he should profile as a quality starter in the majors someday.
  • NYM Shortstop
    A high school shortstop from Georgia, Houck (no relation to the Red Sox right-hander with the same last name) offers excellent power potential and has some chance of lasting in the middle infield, although it’s possible he’ll eventually move to third base. The 18-year-old is committed to Mississippi State and given the fact that he fell to the early second round there could be some concerns about the Mets’ ability to sign him. Since it was their first pick in the draft though, they shouldn’t have a problem going over-slot to get a deal done.
  • Relief Pitcher #54
    Yankees released RHP Colten Brewer.
    The 30-year-old right-hander has a deal in place with a team in Japan, so the Yankees granted his release. Brewer posted a 4.32 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and a 4/3 K/BB ratio in 8 1/3 innings with the Yankees this season.
  • TB Shortstop
    Santana is a phenomenal defender, and also possesses top-notch speed, which gives him a chance to make it to the big leagues down the road. The 17-year-old shortstop is a switch-hitter with gap-to-gap power at the moment, and figures to grow into some additional power over the next few years. He’s a long ways off from making any sort of fantasy impact, but he’s definitely going to stick at shortstop long-term.
