The top of the annual Rule 4 Draft, more commonly known as the June Draft, is almost always dominated by players with tools, or the physical ability to play and compete at the Major League level. Scouts will often throw out the simple phrase “tools play” when either promoting an under-performing prospect or disparaging a high performance type player. Skills often become secondary in the equation and historically and logically that’s where they should properly belong.

However, there is one position on the baseball field that is often the exception to that “tools play” mantra with a classic potential example of that in the 2013 class.

The position is catcher. The example is 2012 Perfect Game All-American Jeremy Martinez.
