2013 MLB Draft: Florico Region Report

1. Chris Okey, C, HS, 35/65: Very good athelte. Hits the ball hard consistently. Good pop times. All around solid players.
2. Chris Anderson, P, JR, 40/60: Mid 90's fastball with a nice breaking ball and change. Good three pitch mix.
3. Jan Hernandez, 3B, HS, 35/60: Really fast bat. Hits the ball with auhority. Good actions as SS. Has a small chance of sticking there. Impressive player.
4. Zack Collins, 1B, HS, 35/60: Great power potential. Fast bat, good hitting ability. Polished approach. Struggles occasionally due to minor mechanical issues.
5. Brett Morales, P, HS, 35/55: Soild build. Up to 94 with excellent secondary's. Needs to work on command.

6. Cord Sandberg, OF, HS, 30/55: Phenomenal athlete. tons of power potential.
7. John Sternagel, 3B, HS, 35/55: Nothing flashy here. Just a very good hitter that can play all over and do it all well. Blue collar 5 tool guy.
8. Tyler Danish, P, HS, 35/55: Bulldog attitude. Fastball up to 95 at times. Nice slider.
9. Gunnar McNeill, 1B, HS, 30/55: Massive power potential. Really like the swing.
10. Karsten Whitson, P, JR, 25/65: Shoulder injury keeps him from the top of this list. Likely going back to Florida
11. Jonathon Crawford, P, JR, 40/55: Erratic stuff from 92-97 with fastball with a slider and change that show potenital. I think he's a reliever.
12. Willie Abreu, OF, HS, 35/50: Good all around player. Power is the carrying tool and it may take a bit to come on.
13. Brian Navarreto, C, HS, 35/50: Impressive catching skills. Good hitter as well.
14. Nick Longhi, 1B, HS, 35/50: Profiles at 1B. He's slow and won't play elsewhere so bat has to be big. I don't see it yet.
15. Tucker Neuhaus, 3B, HS, 30/50: Nice swing. Lots of power. Inconsistent, short track record and has had a string of injuries or he'd be higher.
16. Edwin Diaz, SS, HS, 30/50: good bat. Could have plus power. Good defensively at SS, could stick there.
17. J.B. Woodman, OF, HS, 30/50: Impressive tools. Not in love with the hit tool. Good power potential.
18. Oscar Mercado, SS, HS, 35/50: All glove SS could be an easy 1st rounder if the bat was better. I don't think he'll hit.
19. Harrison Cooney, P, JR, 40/55: Can pound the strike zone with upper 90's heat. Good secondary's as well. May be worth starting with closer as a fallback.
20. Ronnie Healy, C, HS, 30/50: Big power. Good actions behind the dish.
21. Stephen Alemais, SS, HS, 35/50: good defender up the middle. Ok bat better from right side
22. Bernardo Bonifacio, OF, HS, 30/50: Big arm, really fast and can hit the cover off the ball. Hit tool is an issue but impressive player. Old for the draft, though.
23. Victor Caratini, C, SO, 30/50: Very good bat. More power from the left side. Solid speed for his size. Not great defensive ability though.
24. Eugene Vazquez, OF, HS, 30/50: Toolsy athlete. Nice swing, although unusual setup.
25. Christian Arroyo, SS, HS, 30/50: polished middle infiedler with solid line drive approach at the plate.
26. Jason Sierra, OF, HS, 30/50: Strongly built guy. Good bat. Bat will have to carry him. LF/1B profile.
27. Juan Escarra, 3B, HS, 30/50: Huge power potential. Needs a lot of work to stay at 3B.
28. Ben DeLuzio, SS, HS, 30/45: Good up the middle defender. Really fast, not as confident in his bat.
29. Ian Hagenmiller, 3B, HS, 30/45: Really nice swing. Good power projection. Good arm. Not sure about defensively at 3B but could be average with work, I would think.
30. Blake Hennessey, SS, HS, 30/50: Sells out with the bat but I like the potential. Good defensively with soft hands but likely a 3B.
31. Daniel Gibson, P, JR, 35/45: Good fastball. Needs to tighten up breaking ball.
32. Carson Baranik, P, J2, 25/50: Nasty breaking ball. Good change but velo hasn't ticked past 90 yet. I expected more.
33. Ben Lively, P, JR, 35/45: Quick arm, good deception. Arm action creates command issues. Three usable pitches
34. Sean Dwyer, OF, JR, 35/45: Sweet left handed swing but hasn't shown the power a corner guy needs to.
35. Zack Powers, 3B, JR, 30/45: Skinny with good power potneital. I see him as a bit of a sleeper if he adds strength.
36. Joe Alexander Jimenez, P, HS, 30/50: Low 3/4 delivery makes slider slurvy. Could have two plus pitches with work.
37. John Kilichowski, P, HS, 30/45: FB at 90, big breaking ball.
38. Sean Brady, P, HS, 30/50: Very athletic. Solid athlete.
39. Spencer Trayner, SS, HS, 30/45: Big leg kick. Could simplify to help bat. Big arm, good D at SS.
40. Dalton Duty, 2B, HS, 30/45: line drive swing. Hits the ball hard. Good defender at 2B
41. Vickash Ramjit, 1B, SR, 35/45: He can hit. He can play RF and 1B well. Good org guy with more potential with the bat.
42. M.T. Minacci, SS, HS, 30/45: Good bat. Good arm. Solid two way guy
43. Taylor Blatch, OF, HS, 25/45: Good athlete. Short but up to 93.
44. Pete Alonso, 3B, HS, 25/45: Good power potential. Likely a 1B down the line
45. James Ramsay, OF, JR, 40/45: polished center fielder. High floor, low ceiling
46. Joseph Starling, P, HS, 30/45: Low 90's velocity. Body is soft. Unusual delivery.
47. Jeff Driskel, OF, SO, 20/55: Big power potential. Very good athlete.
48. Johneshwy Fargas, OF, HS, 25/45: Big tools. Don't believe in the bat.
49. Ian McKinney, P, HS, 30/50: Low 90's over the top. Good deception. Nice curveball
50. Dale Carey, OF, JR, 30/45: Has fallen off big at the plate. Good defender
51. Nicholas Washington, 3B, HS, 25/50: football d back may play baseball at Florida
