PG Grade: 8
Craig Simonson is a 2009 C/OF/3B with a 5'8'', 147 lb. frame from Savage, MN, who attends Burnsville High School. Simonson was one of the youngest players at the event, but he showed advanced tools for his age. He has a lean and projectable body that will easily add strength. He has solid arm strength behind the plate with his throws at 73 mph. Simonson is a two-handed catcher who receives well with nice hands. He did a good job catching older pitchers with good stuff. At the plate he is a right handed hitter with a very quick bat for his age. He stays short and compact to the ball with a line drive swing plane. He takes an aggressive swing on balls in the strike zone, but stays balanced throughout his aggressive swing and gets good leverage at the point of contact. He is currently a line drive gap to gap hitter, but he should be able to drive the ball deeper in the gaps as he matures physically. He is great upside as a hitter and catcher. He is a must follow, and is a good student as well.
