Also see: East Coast Pro Top 15 Pitchers
Byron Buxton (Appling County HS, Baxley, GA): Explosive speed
and athleticism, 3.89 from the right side, 3.18 on a steal. Pull
approach hitting, can drive the ball out of the park, aggressive
hitter. Top level arm in centerfield. Justin Upton with more usable
speed? Potential 1st pick in 2012 draft.
David Dahl (Oak Mountain HS, Birmingham, AL): Ability to perform
can overshadow his tools, plus runner with an outstanding outfield
arm, line drive machine, very advanced hitter who shows flashes of
plus power as well.
Jesse Winker (Olympia HS, Windemere, FL): Might have the best
pure bat in the 2012 class, combines power and hittability, also made
the best defensive play of the event with an over the shoulder dive
in left field.
Albert Almora (Mater Academy, Hialeah, FL): Two home runs in the
first game, plays the game with little effort and performs above his
raw tools, should have no trouble adjusting as the game speeds up.
Carlos Correa (Puerto Rico BB Academy, Santa Isabel, PR):
Defensive tools are unquestioned, had quality at bats against the
better pitchers he faced and dialed up his bat speed, power might not
develop quickly but it’s there.
