Draft 14 – Braxton Davidson, Cobi Johnson, Mac Marshall, Handsome Monica, Alex Verdugo
8-16-13 – 11th All-American Classic – Braxton Davidson (OF/1B, TC Roberson HS (Asheville, NC)): Big 6-foot-3, 215 pound frame; big trunk; square stance; a toe-tap timing; balanced, fluid swing quick to the ball; creates good loft; potential 6/6 hit/power guy; arm is solid and accurate; chance he’s limited to first base, but could be a good one; hit tool is one of the most advanced in the prep class. —Chris Rodriguez http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=21537
8-25-13 – John Manuel @johnmanuelba – Saw the athleticism & projection that makes Cobi Johnson a prospect for #mlbdraft Unique delivery, threw strikes from 87-91 FB, 77 BKB
8-14-13 – Through The Fence – Top 50 Prospects – 25. Mac Marshall, LHP, Parkview HS (GA) – One of the better southpaws in the 2014 MLB draft, Marshall’s fastball sits in the low/mid-90s and he has worked hard on his delivery and command over the past year. He also flashed a potential plus curveball at the Perfect Game Nationals. At 6’-2” and 185 pounds, he is a great athlete who has been clocked at 6.7 in the 60. As a junior, he had 80 K/32 BB over 46 innings for one of the premiere programs in the country. Committed to Georgia. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2014-mlb-draft-top-50-prospects/36463#mwWwsFxSUZy7YC5V.99
2013 East Coast Pro Showcase Top 50 Prospects – 43. Handsome Monica – C, St. Paul’s (LA) HS – Has a serious power bat and showed good pop times at TOS and ECP. http://www.ninebaseball.org/Wordpress/sullys-top-50-ecp-prospects/
8-25-13 – Nathan Rode @NathanRode – I’m know I’m really going out on a limb, but I love watching Alex Verdugo play. Such a dynamic player on both sides of the ball.
