Every year there are many talented prospects that get a bit lost in the shuffle, but are still prospects I believe can be potential outstanding players at the ML level. These are a few players that are -in my view- underrated…
#72 > Garin Cecchini, 3B, Barbe HS (LA)… Injury took a toll on his season, and the LSU commitment may worry some, but Cecchini has a great deal of upside with a quick bat and strong build. Could be a real steal after round one.
#78 > Tony Wolters, SS, Rancho Buena Vista HS (CA)… Too short. Tell Dustin Pedroia that. Outstanding results with a less-than-ideal stature and skill-set.
#NR > Jacoby Jones, SS, Richton HS (MS)… Big, athletic SS with a quick bat, solid power potential, and solid defensive skillset.
#NR > Michael Lorenzon, OF, Fullerton Union HS (CA)… At 6’2-175, Lorenzon is lean and athletic. He’s not particularly fast, but runs well and is simply a gamer. Very good contact hitter with some power potential and plus arm. Could be a real steal if he adds power to an already solid skill-set.
