MLB Draft Rankings 10-1


Player: Carter Stewart Position(s): RHP
School (ST): Eastern Florida State Grade: JuCo
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height:  6’6” Weight: 200 lbs.
Quick Report: The eighth overall selection in last year’s draft, he and the Braves were unable to come to an agreement after the Braves discovered a wrist ailment. Stewart decided to go the JuCo route this season rather than Mississippi State, and he hopes to be a top 10 selection again this year. He obviously has all the talent to be in the top 10, now it just remains to see if he is healthy and how much the ugly negotiations, which saw him file and lose a grievance against the Braves, impact his stock this season.



Player:  Graeme Stinson Position(s): LHP
School (ST): Duke Grade: Junior
Bats: Left Throws: Left Height:  6’5” Weight: 260 lbs.
Quick Report: My top ranked pitcher at this point, Stinson has the body you want out of a workhorse starter, even though he spent a good amount of time pitching out of the bullpen for the Blue Devils thus far. He has a fastball, slider, change mix with the fastball sitting in the low 90s with run thanks to his low arm slot. If he can prove he can hold up to a full season in the rotation, Stinson should solidify himself as the top arm in the class.



Player: Corbin Carroll Position(s): OF
School (ST): Lakeside (WA) Grade: High School
Bats: Left Throws: Left Height:  5’11” Weight: 161 lbs.
Quick Report: While he is not physically imposing, Carroll is a real impact player. He can fly on the bases and while manning center field. At the plate, he has a massive leg kick but great balance making him one of the better contact hitters in the class. He doesn’t hit for much power, but some may come. He also lacks arm strength in the outfield, but he impacts the game in so many other ways that is not of much concern.



Player: Riley Greene Position(s): OF
School (ST): Hagerty (FL) Grade:  High School
Bats: Left Throws: Left Height:  6’1” Weight:191 lbs.
Quick Report: Greene has the best combination of hit and power of any high schooler this year. He went into the showcase circuit with that title, and routinely squared up the best pitchers in the circuit, solidifying his spot in the top 10. The concern on Greene is the fact he doesn’t have a real position. He doesn’t get the best jumps and lacks the speed to make up for it in the outfield, so left field or first will likely be his eventual position, capping his draft upside.



Player:  Josh Jung Position(s): 3B
School (ST): Texas Tech Grade: Junior
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’2” Weight: 215 lbs.
Quick Report: I love Josh Jung’s game. He doesn’t have much range at third, but he has quick enough reactions and plenty of arm to stick at the position. At the plate he does nothing but put the barrel to the ball. He will hit for solid average and will hit for plenty of power. He starts with a wide base and has a minimal stride, allowing his hands to get to the ball quickly and enough strength to drive the ball to all fields. To me, Jung has the highest floor of any position player in the draft this year.



Player: Andrew Vaughn Position(s): 1B
School (ST): California Grade: Junior
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height:  6’ Weight: 214 lbs.
Quick Report: The 2018 Golden Spikes Award winner put up a ridiculous .402 average while launching 23 home runs a season after winning the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year title.  He also shows an excellent eye at the plate, walking nearly three times for every two strikeouts. He will likely be limited to firsts base, but he can be a very good defensive asset at the position. He may be the best hitter in the class this year and would probably be at the top of the list if he played almost any position but first.



Player: Shea Langeliers Position(s): C
School (ST): Baylor Grade: Junior
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height:  6’ Weight: 190 lbs.
Quick Report: If there is something I am a total sucker for it is defensive catchers, and Langeliers is one who happens to be able to hit for some power. His bat path is a bit long, which does cost him in average, but he gets good leverage and will be able to hit for close to 20 home runs at the next level. His hands are a little busy pre-pitch but are very soft when receiving the ball. He has an absolute cannon of an arm and good feet, regularly putting up pop times around 1.80 and typically right on the money.



Player: CJ Abrams Position(s): SS
School (ST): Blessed Trinity Catholic (GA) Grade: High School
Bats: Left Throws: Right Height:  6’1” Weight: 178 lbs.
Quick Report: A true plus-plus runner, Abrams will be a future big-league lead-off hitter who will certainly stick at short. He has a strong arm and quick hips around the bag. He has a natural left-handed swing that is smooth and gets the bat on the ball with ease. There is plenty of room for him to fill out and add power, but he will have to do a better job of staying behind the ball for that to translate.



Player: Bobby Witt Jr. Position(s): SS
School (ST): Colleyville Heritage (TX) Grade: High School
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’ Weight: 180 lbs.
Quick Report: This year’s draft class is really the top two and everyone else. Bobby Witt Jr. has long been the top prep prospect and has the possibility of being a true five tool shortstop with a genuine love and feel for the game. His best tool is his arm, possessing a cannon that help him turn double plays that shouldn’t be, and the throws from the 5-6 hole. He has the power and speed to be a 20-20 guy annually with a chance to develop into a 30-30 player.



Player: Adley Rutschman Position(s): C
School (ST): Oregon State Grade: Junior
Bats: Switch Throws: Right Height: 6’2” Weight: 216 lbs.
Quick Report: For me, Rutschman is in a class of his own. Not only does he have easily the best leg in the draft class (he was the Beaver’s kickoff specialist his freshman year) he is the best switch hitter in the class, one of the top defensive catchers in the class, and a CWS Most Outstanding Player. He can hit for average from both sides of the plate and could easily develop into a 30 home run hitter.
