Ciuffo is a well rounded backstop that can impact the game offensively and defensively.

2013 MLB Draft: Oklahoma's Jonathan Gray, #1?

Sean Manaea and Tom Windle faced off at Metrodome on Friday night in the Battle of the First Round Lefties

2013 MLB Draft: Is Drew Ward a First Round Pick?

11

Ward's power potential and recent eligibility are unusual. He is going to be one of the more intriguing stories leading up to this draft.

Denney: Best Bat in the Prep Class?

33

Denney has been said to have elite defensive skills by many but I see his bat as even better than his defense.

'13 Draft: Can William Abreu Follow Albert Almora?

1

Abreu is a smooth, athletic player, was Albert Almora's teammate, and shares a few similar qualities.

2013 MLB Draft: Clint Frazier Hits Two Bombs

10

Frazier has a shot at the #1 overall pick in the 2013 draft. This is one reason why, or two reasons why.

Are Minor League stats predictive of future success?

16

The age of prospects at each level has a high correlation to future success. Here are the draft ages of the top high school prospects in the 2013 draft.

2013 MLB Draft Top 100 Draft Prospects

170

Since High School season is upon us in the southern states and the College season is underway, I thought this would be a good time to update my top 100 draft prospects.

Samford's Phillip Ervin has 20-20 potential

5

Phillip Ervin has 20-20 potential with electric bat speed. He is hard to profile defensively though.

2013 Draft: Chris Okey, Super-Athletic Catcher

20

Florida high school backstop Okey is an amazing athlete for a catcher. He has a unique set of skills that may make a team inclined to moving him elsewhere, but he has the defensive ability to stick...

2013 Draft: Dustin Driver, Durable Prep Arm

7

Driver doesn't have the stuff to be a frontline starter but he projects to be a workhorse with solid #3 potential.

2013 MLB Draft: Stephen Gonsalves, LHP

13

Big lefty Gonsalves has enough present skill to be impressive and enough projection to be exciting.

Can Jonathon Crawford keep his draft stock up?

9

Crawford picked up a lot of draft helium with a great year 2012. We will see if his junior year keeps lifting him or deflates his stock.

MLB International Signings Update for 2012

70

The top of this list is as strong as it has been in years. It was a very good year for international talent.

2013 Draft: Jeremy Martinez, Polished Bat, Glove

21

Jeremy Martinez is a strong backstop with a good bat but it's a deep class of prep backstops. Where does he line up?

2013 MLB Draft: Ian Clarkin's Curve is Crazy

13

Clarkin's curveball is one of the best, if not the best, in the prep class. He may be the best prep lefty in the draft.

2013 MLB Draft: Reese McGuire, Promising Catcher

49

McGuire is really solid behind the dish and has an impressive bat as wel.

2013 MLB Draft: Michael Lorenzen, CS Fullerton

12

Lorenzen is a great athlete but I'm not sure if it matters if the bat isn't there.

Jan Hernandez Follows in Correa's Footsteps

19

If you told me in ten years that he is the best hitter from the 2013 draft, I would not be surprised.

Miss State's Hunter Renfroe: Power Bat, Power Arm

10

Renfroe sells out for power and it works occasionally. Is he better suited on the mound? Can a pro team help him gain consistency?
