2011 DRAFT PROFILE: - 3B - Jason Esposito

Jason Esposito:

4-7-10 from: http://www.pgcrosschecker.com/articles/DisplayArticle.aspx?article=2253  - 3B Jason Esposito (Vanderbilt): Esposito, an unsigned seventh-round pick in 2008, is too good an athlete and too good a hitter to expect him to be anything but a first-round pick in 2011. He’s hitting .363-7-38 with 14 steals this spring, and is a standout defensively at third base.

6-12-10 from: - http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/wait-til-next-year-2011-draft-preview  - The most well-rounded player up the middle is Jason Esposito (.359/.453/.582), who really came into his own in year two under Tim Corbin at Vanderbilt. He’s now patient, with developing gap power and a threat on the bases (career 50-for-59). Maybe a third baseman in the end, but a five-tool one …

5-18-10 from: - http://thecollegebaseballblog.com/2010/05/18/tcbb-players-of-the-week-may-18th  - The College Baseball Blog continues our tradition of naming National Player and Pitcher of the Week. This week we honor Jason Esposito of Vanderbilt as our Player of the Week. Even though Jason Esposito lost out on SEC Player of the Week Honors, he gets our National Player of the Week. Esposito started off the week with a Walk-Off Homerun against Louisville in the Bottom of the 17th inning that by our estimations still has yet to land. Over the weekend, Esposito went 10 for 19, with 9 runs scored, 2 RBI, and drew a total of 7 walks. On Sunday, he drew 5 walks while going 1-1 with a double to extend his on base streak to 15 straight at bats. Esposito’s clutch efforts in helping Vanderbilt go 4-0 on the week helped Vanderbilt clinch their spot in the SEC Tournament.

8-27 from: - http://xmlbscout.angelfire.com/  - 3B-SS Jason Esposito Vanderbilt 6'1 195 R/R - gamer with tools, comps to Ryan Zimmerman, Jason has improved his quickness and first step moves to field either side of his glove since HS in Connecticut (Amity HS) and runs better out of the box, 4.3 from right side which is solid ave, runs alot better between bases and enough quickness to steal 15-20 bases in ML. Throwing arm is solid and has the offensive potential to hit 20-25 HR drive in 80 plus runs and hit close to 300 with good eye hand coordination and pitch discipline, will be over aggressive at times, but that is natural for most hitters. Will be in the bigs quicker than Tony Graffanino was years back.
