While the 2012 draft class has tons of depth at some positions such as pitching (but what draft doesn’t?) and outfielders, it’s incredibly slim at others.
As I mentioned last week, the crop of shortstop prospects is less than impressive, and I think the fact that the Pirates have been linked to Arizona State’s Deven Marrero at No. 8 overall is a testament to this notion.
However, one position that has drawn mixed reviews from scouts is catcher, as it’s hard to draw a fair evaluation, considering that some teams aren’t sure whether they will develop certain players behind the plate or move them to a new position.
At the same time, there are teams who are interested in moving a player from his current position to catcher, as they believe that’s where his tools will be the most projectable and valuable.
