The 2014 MLB Draft class is shaping up to be a deep an eclectic group of players from both the high school and college ranks. If you’re a scouting director you have high risk players to choose from, as well as the safe and reliable college talent that can reach the big leagues in a hurry. One of the most coveted players of that latter group when the spring rolls around should be Stanford infielder Alex Blandino. While he hit a mild speed bump in his sophomore season at Stanford, Blandino has otherwise established himself as one of the nation’s steadiest players.

Players like Blandino typically need to establish a track record in order to get the credit they deserve. While he was drafted out of high school – in the 38th round by the Oakland Athletics – he was clearly not the sought after draft prospect back in 2011 that he is today. That track record was established quickly, however, as Blandino came out and had an outstanding freshman season after electing to attend Stanford. Playing multiple positions on the infield, Blandino hit .294 with eight home runs in 153 at-bats for the Cardinal. And, Blandino wasn’t done just yet, as he was about to introduce himself to every scout in the nation during that summer.
