With the advent of technology, baseball scouts now have at their disposal a variety of tools with which to better evaluate talent at the high school, college and international.
But no tool can accurately measure a prospect's ability to hit the stuffing out of a ball.
Every MLB team has a bevy of prospects with a variety of skill sets, but the ability to hit a baseball long and far is not a skill in abundance. ln fact, many of the sluggers on this list aren't even among MLB.com's list of Top 100 prospects.
With pitching being the major focus of many teams, they are atop many of their team's top rankings. But that doesn't mean the boys who can hit a baseball a country mile are hidden within their depths.
