Scouting Report: Yordy Cabrera, INF, Lakeland (FL) HS (2010 Draft)

By
January 22, 2010

Yordy Cabrera has raw right-handed power, which is the tool that is going to make him a first-round pick. He has some competitive secondary tools – speed and an arm you can use – but let’s be serious. The dollar sign is on the power.

Scouting Report: Kevin Gausman, RHP, Grandview (Colo.) HS (2010 Draft)

By
January 8, 2010

LSU likes its right-handers to be tall, lean, hard-throwing guys with Friday night stuff. Pro scouts like the same thing, but they call it No. 1 starter stuff. In the 2010 MLB Draft class, Colorado right-hander Kevin Gausman fits both criteria. If he gets to LSU, he should be an immediate contributor. If he signs after high school, he’ll become one of his new organization’s power arms for the future. Let the gamesmanship begin. Here’s what the scouting report says.

Scouting Report: Stefan Sabol, C, Aliso Niguel (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

By
December 9, 2009

Catcher Stefan Sabol committed to play college baseball at Oregon. I put a Craig Biggio projection  on him because I believe he’ll have the hands to consistently put the ball in play as a pro. I see enough power in the coming years to make him a threat to occassionally get one out. He’ll run very well for the position, which lends to the Biggio comparison. Defensively, he improved from summer to spring but still needs pro instruction and innings to be ready to catch at the major league level. He shows enthusiasm for the position in-game, which is a good sign. He’ll need to improve on catching low pitches in the coming years and learn to better transfer some of his athletic actions to blocking balls. His arm strength is more than enough to make him a threat, but he’ll need to work on his footwork so his throws don’t sail on him as much. Be this as it may, if he hits, they will find a place for him to play.

Scouting Video: Kris Bryant, INF, Bonanza (NV) HS (2010 Draft)

By
December 8, 2009

Kris Bryant has two valuable commodities going for him, both of which you cannot teach. One in his body type, which is long, tall and loose, and the other is his power. His power is all raw and his frequency is all in front of him. He’s going to be a good riser on the 2010 Draft charts and he is yet another product from Las Vegas, which sends us power-hitting corner infielders the way the Dominican Republic sends us shortstops.

By

Bryce Harper, the made for TV prospect, went hitless. Anthony Wolters, an undersized shortstop who can run and play defense, showed he also will place himself in the running to be a top-round pick next June on Sunday night at the Aflac game at Petco Park in San Diego.
