Top 50 draft prospects for 2012: 25 thru 1


Written by: Dan Kirby

This is a list of the top-50 draft prospects from high school and college. This by no means is a projected draft order, just a ranking by talent and potential. With all of these players having another season to work on their games, a lot can change come draft time. This is the way I see it right now.
(50 thru 26 can be seen here)

12. David Dahl — 6’-2”, OF, Oak Mountain HS (AL)
Dahl is another member of U18 Team USA, and his recent play has his stock soaring up draft boards. He hit .364 with 11 runs, nine RBI and seven stolen bases batting leadoff for Team USA, while also playing stellar defense in the outfield at the Pan Am Championships. The lefty is one of the purest hitters in the draft, and his short, level swing allows for consistent contact, which projects to a high average hitter. Runs a 6.5/60 and should be a real threat on the base paths. Aside from his offensive prowess, Dahl also has a plus arm, and coupled with his speed and high baseball IQ, should be among the top 15 picks in the draft.

Must admit, I don't too excited about these guys until May. I just read up on the first 25 and as usual, I'd take any of them. Does anyone think its stupid top grab the catcher ranked in the early twenties at the twelfth pick just to get a good future catcher in the system or should they just take best available? I like the best available approach, but would understand trying to get a good catching prospect in the organization.
