David Cooper is a solid 6'0/180 1B/LHP from Stockton, CA. He is a genuine top level college 2-way prospect. In fact, he is a draftable 2-way prospect. He showed upper 80s velocity in Tropicana Field, but we have seen him touching 91. He has an outstanding changeup and throws two quality breaking balls. He has excellent command of all his pitches. He has great mechanics, repeats his delivery to a T and his arm works smoothly and quick. However, we like his bat even better. He's one of, if not the top, left handed bat in the country. He has a short quick swing at the plate that should produce consistent high averages, something that hitters facing his 90 mph fastball and plus change up won’t have. He has a great low maintenance swing and the ball explodes off his bat. He's going to hit with power also. Think Mark Kotsay at the same age. David is a good athlete who runs fairly well and he's an outstanding defensive player. He will create a lot of early pick interest in next year's draft.
