MLB Draft Rankings 90-81

90)

Player: Emanuel Dean Position(s):  OF
School (ST): Servite (CA) Grade: High School
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’5” Weight: 209 lbs.
Quick Report: Dean has the look of a player already in a pro organization not a high school senior, possessing a strong frame that allows him to really drive the ball and has a strong arm as well. Likely a future right fielder, Dean has a chance to jump up boards if his BP power can start to shine in games.

 

89)

Player: Spencer Brickhouse Position(s): 1B
School (ST):  East Carolina Grade: Junior
Bats: Left Throws: Right Height: 6’4” Weight: 220 lbs.
Quick Report: There has been a resurgence in the first base prospect world recently, and Brickhouse (a fitting name) will benefit from it. He is a pure power hitter from the left side of the plate. He strikes out far too often, but the raw power will offset that negative. Some feel he could play some left field, but the most likely outcome is as an all bat first baseman.

 

88)

Player: Joseph Charles Position(s): RHP
School (ST): The First Academy (FL) Grade: High School
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’2” Weight: 193 lbs.
Quick Report: A two pitch righty who has a mid-90s fastball and impressive slider, both play up even more thanks to his ability to hide the ball for a long time. There is some short arm action that always concerns me, but the is also some athleticism and good extension on the follow through that has me less worried about his arm health than I normally am from a guy with his arm action.

 

87)

Player: Jake Agnos Position(s): LHP
School (ST): East Carolina Grade: Junior
Bats: Left Throws: Left Height: 5’11” Weight: 206 lbs.
Quick Report: An interesting prospect given his lack of height and funky delivery, but he has three solid pitches and can get them all over for strikes. He is herky jerky in his delivery before getting into a consistent 3/4 arm slot and gets good extension. He has been quite inconsistent thus far in his college career, so this is a big season as he could fall off draft boards all together, or he could rocket into a solid second rounder.

 

86)

Player: Levi Stoudt Position(s): RHP
School (ST): Lehigh Grade: Junior
Bats: Left Throws: Right Height: 6’1” Weight: 175 lbs.
Quick Report: One of the better small school prospects this year, Stoudt is a guy it is hard to get a ton of info on as few saw him before the Cape this summer. His three-pitch mix is strong with a slurvy breaking ball, change, and a fastball that can get up to 95 MPH. He has an athletic and repeatable delivery that should allow him to stick as a starter, but has the stuff to succeed in a bullpen as well.

 

85)

Player: Hylan Hall Position(s): OF
School (ST): TNXL Academy (FL) Grade: High School
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’1” Weight: 176 lbs.
Quick Report: Tools! That is the best way to describe Hylan Hall. He has plus speed and an elite first step, a plus arm in the outfield, plus raw power, but the contact can be a concern. If Hall can prove to scouts he has the ability to make adjustments and make more contact, he could become an organization’s top prospect in time, if not, he will be just another toolsy outfielder who flames out. Time will tell.

 

84)

Player: Michael Limoncelli Position(s): RHP
School (ST): Horseheads (NY) Grade: High School
Bats: Switch Throws: Right Height: 6’2” Weight: 180 lbs.
Quick Report: Cold weather pitchers that can sit in the 90s with a good feel for a breaking ball and flashes of a viable change are always easy to dream on. Add to that an athletic body with a smooth, easy 3/4 slot delivery, and you have a player who has the potential to get drafted much higher than most expect.

 

83)

Player: Landon Sims Position(s): RHP
School (ST): South Forsyth (GA) Grade: High School
Bats: Right Throws: Right Height: 6’1” Weight: 205 lbs.
Quick Report: Sims has a very athletic body and a good low 3/4 release point, but there is effort in the finish of the delivery and he gets below his slider far too often, leaving it spinning rather than breaking. His fastball sits in the low-to-mid-90s and shows good run. Based on size and effort, I anticipate him being a reliever long term, but adding consistency to the slider and he could be an impact reliever someday.

 

82)

Player: Bryant Packard Position(s): OF
School (ST): East Carolina Grade: Junior
Bats: Left Throws: Right Height: 6’3” Weight: 210 lbs.
Quick Report: My run on East Carolina Pirates continues with Packard, the All-American outfielder who hit better than .400 last season and spent time in both the Cape and with USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team. He hit 14 home runs a season ago, but there is more power to be tapped in to, with a bat that already makes consistent contact. The bat provides natural backspin on the ball that leads to lots of XBH. The downside? His eye at the plate needs work and he isn’t a standout defender, meaning the power needs to truly breakout for him to be an elite prospect.

 

81)

Player: Ricky DeVito Position(s): RHP
School (ST): Seton Hall Grade: Junior
Bats: Switch Throws: Right Height:  6’2” Weight: 175 lbs.
Quick Report: DeVito impressed on the Cape this summer and has shown the ability to throw all three of his pitches for strikes. His fastball works up to 96 and is change can absolutely fall off the table. He falls off the mound to the first base side and there is some inconsistencies to his delivery that leave some concern, but he has the stuff to be a mid-rotation arm in the future.
