2013 MLB Draft: Atlantic Region

Moran is the cream of the crop here but the top 6 are all first round capable and if anyone in the top 10 went in the first round, I would not be surprised. They all have interesting tools or skills that make them worthy of that type of choice in one way or another.
1. Colin Moran, 3B, JR, 45/65: Elite hitter. Maybe a 1B but has "it." Full Profile
2. Nick Ciuffo, C, HS, 35/60: great all around player. Good defense, good hitter. Good leader. Full Profile
3. Hunter Harvey, P, HS, 35/55: big arm, good secondaries. Bryan's son.
4. Matthew McPhearson, OF, HS, 30/55: Game changing speed. I like the bat more all the time.
5. Andy McGuire, 3B, HS, 30/55: Everything you want in a prospect. Plus defender at 3b, might try him at ss.



6. Connor Jones, P, HS, 30/55: Really fast delivery bothers me. Like the stuff, though
7. Akeem Bostick, P, HS, 25/55: Sleeper. Great athlete. Up to 93, more in there.
8. Kent Emanuel, P, JR, 45/55: Polished lefty with average velocity, great pitchability. Full Profile
9. Aaron Blair, P, JR, 35/50: Good three pitch mix, 90-92 fastball up to 94
10. Chad Pinder, 3B, JR, 40/50: great defender, good bat. Not a profile 3B, may work at SS.
11. Weston Wilson, SS, HS, 30/50: Leveraged swing. Good power potential. Good athlete
12. Kevin Trader, P, HS, 30/50: Short, up to 92, tight slider. Good gut feeling about this guy.
13. K.J. Woods, OF, HS, 25/55: big guy. Looks like a tight end out there. Keon Barnum type
14. Ryder Jones, 3B, HS, 25/55: Very good athlete. swing issues.
15. Austin Nicely, P, HS, 25/50: Smooth lefty arm. Low 90's fastball
16. Tyler Horan, OF, JR, 30/50: Power guy, 1b likely
17. Alex Haines, P, JR, 20/55: Up to 96 but one pitch guy
18. Jacob May, OF, JR, 40/45: Polished low upside cf
19. Ryan Cordell, OF, JR, 25/50: Raw athlete coming along well
20. Logan Koch, C, HS, 25/50: Probably college guy but could improve at S.C.
21. A.J. Bogucki, P, HS, 25/50: Good build, loose and easy up to 92. good slider
22. Cory Thompson, P, HS, 25/50: Athletic. Up to 94. More of a thrower than a pitcher right now. Good hitter as well.
23. Jack Roberts, P, HS, 25/50: Low 3/4 delivery. Up to 92
24. Shon Carson, OF, SO, 25/50: Running back build
25. Kevin Jordan, OF, JR, 20/50: Needs work in all areas of his game but has a lot of tools.
26. Alex Bostic, P, HS, 20/50: Athletic, up to 90
27. Bryce Harman, 1B, HS, 20/50: Huge kid. Big power
28. Thomas Rogers, P, HS, 20/50: Easy 89 MPH. Late round target
29. Erich Knab, P, J1, 20/50: up to 94 but secondaries lag behind.
30. Jae Roberts, 3B, HS, 20/50: Short and stocky. Whippy swing but good power potential. Good athlete, tools.
31. Zach Rice, P, HS, 25/45: Long arm action but can hit 89

33. Alec Bettinger, P, HS, 25/45: Can hit 90. Small but athletic
34. Tyler Barnette, P, JR, 35/45: Command is an issue. secondary's are below average
35. Matt Roberts, C, JR, 35/45: Good d, some pop but not a good hitter
36. Eli White, SS, HS, 25/45: Could be a very good college player. If he moves to 3B, he should be plus defensively.
37. Forrest Koumas, P, JR, 35/40: Good mound presence. Upper 80's. Short and stocky. 78-84 slider works well
38. Tray Roberts, P, HS, 20/50: Athlete. Poor pitch recognition and swing needs work.

Catchers By Age

The best way to analyze prospects is using their age in relation to the level they are playing at. Without taking too much of the level into account to start, I'll just be looking at age. I use a players age based on the date that MLB uses to define whether a player will be a draft eligible sophomore, because much of my analysis originates with a players drafted year. If a player is 26.01 on that date, he falls into the 26 year old age category. The age won't always match what is listed on Baseball Reference or FanGraphs but that is how I do it. If I don't have a players birthdate, I use the age listed on Baseball Reference.

Catchers typically progress slower than players at most other positions. The average time for a  college catcher to make it to the majors is 4.15 years. The average for a high school catchers is 5.27 years. This time can be reduced if a player has a higher skill level. Elite players only take 3.04 years out of college and 4.09 out of high school.
