Leading up to the 2014 MLB Draft, Perfect Game’s staff of scouts will roll out 100 profiles of top high school and college prospects, with one each being posted each weekday. Our figurative leadoff hitter for the 2014 Perfect Game Draft Focus series is also appropriately the current No. 1 prospect in the PG Class of 2014 high school rankings, Georgia outfielder Michael Gettys.

Five different players were seriously discussed by the Perfect Game staff before Gettys was elevated to the lead spot, replacing catcher Alex Jackson, after the 2013 PG All-American Classic.
