Shane Kroker is a 2008 3B/SS with a 6'3'', 185 lb. frame from Westlake Village, CA who attends Westlake HS. He has a long and lean body with good looseness and leveraged strength. He has an excellent feel for defense at third base and all the tools to be a standout at the hot corner. His hands are very soft and his arm is strong and accurate. He could probably play some shortstop at the next level given his actions and arm but he can impact a game at third base just as well. Offensively, Kroker gets to his front side quickly and is a front foot hitter with a smooth, low effort swing. He stays inside the ball very well and has quick wrists that can drive the ball to the gaps. Kroker's smooth athletic looseness is evident in his swing and more strength is really going enhance his swing and hitting ability. The PG scouts remarked on the similarities between Kroker and Rockies star rookie Troy Tulowitski at the same age; there is a lot more that Kroker needs to do to reach that level but the seeds are there. Kroker is a good student who has a verbal commitment to Wake Forest.
