1.27 C Clint Coulter, Union High School
The premier player of high school baseball in the Northwest, Coulter has big-time power potential for a catcher and at 6'3", 210 pounds, he's a big guy. His footwork behind the plate needs work, as does his plate discipline, but he is the type of on-field leader who could be a franchise catcher.
1.28 OF Victor Roache, Georgia Souther
Perhaps the top college hitter on the board entering the season, Roache suffered a broken wrist making a diving play in the outfield, ending his season after just six games. He led the nation last season with 30 home runs and has very quick hands with power to all fields.
Other Notable Prospects
1S.38 OF Mitch Hangier, Cal Poly
One of the top college bats on the board, despite playing at a small school, Hangier earned second-team All-American honors. With a line of .346 BA, 13 HR, 64 RBI and a cannon arm, he has the look of an everyday right fielder at the big league level.
5.185 RP Damien Magnifico, University of Oklahoma
With an elbow injury his junior year and zero in the way of passable secondary pitches, Magnifico was drafted for one reason, a 100-mph fastball. If he can develop a solid second pitch, likely his slider, he could be a useful reliever.
15.485 SP Buck Farmer, Georgia Tech
The Yellow Jacket's Friday starter, Farmer has one of the best changeups in the draft. His fastball is average and sits in the low-90s, and he needs to refine his curveball or slider to be a starter, but his floor is high and he should settle in as a No. 3 starter in the pros.
