draft - cole tucker

8-23-13 - Player:  Cole Tucker   Primary Position:  SS  Height/Weight:  6’3/175  Bats/Throws:  S/R Home Town:  Phoenix, AZ  School:  Mountain Pointe  Class of:  2014  Committed To:  Arizona  Scouting Notes: 2013 Tournament of Stars notes from Don Olsen: Cole is a tall thin frame with a good deal of projection, very little lower half development with long arms, hands and feet big for frame, could continue to grow.  He is a little noisy in the box from the left side, good bat speed, path with a bit of lift.  Cole has gap power and ability to turn on velocity.  Right side was a little more natural, path was similar, but more line drive path.  Both sides show the bat speed and patience, works the ball to all fields.  Cole displays above average to plus speed, could be a high doubles producing bat with developing power.  Plus arm strength with carry, moves around well, first step burst, lateral range to both sides.  His footwork around the bag is fluid, quality defensive player. http://bigleaguefutures.net/1/2013/08/22/2014-mlb-draft-profile-cole-tucker/


8-16-13 - 11th All-American Classic - Sean Reid-Foley | RHP | Sandalwood HS (Sandalwood, FL) - Height/Weight: 6-foot-3/208 pounds - B/T: R/R  Draft Day Age: 18 years, 9 months Commitment: Florida State - istory: Reid-Foley’s solid PG National showing in June kicked off his summer, and he quickly followed up that performance with a Tournament of Stars showing that earned him an invite to the USA Baseball 18U Team Trials beginning today in Fullerton, California. Two weeks ago the Florida State commit sparkled in a three-inning outing in Syracuse, New York during the East Coast Pro Showcase, easily carving through the outing sitting 92-94 mph and showing two future plus offerings in a low-80s slider and mid-80s changeup. His follow-up outing in Long Beach at the Area Code Games last week involved a step back, as he struggled to find consistency in his offerings and left some evaluators wondering whether he was running on empty after a long summer schedule. - Development: This past weekend in San Diego, Reid-Foley was once again dominant—this time in a one-inning showing during the Perfect Game All-American Classic. His fastball sat in the 92-94 mph range, touching 95, and his slider was back to flashing plus with hard bite and tilt. It was an important outing in front of a lot of high-level decision makers, particularly after struggling in front a lot of the same faces last week in Long Beach. Reid-Foley has raised his stock greatly this summer and should enter the spring as one of the top righty arms in the class.  http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=21537


8-13-13 - The Perfect Game All-American Classic in San Diego - Rancho Bernardo’s Alex Jackson. Jackson was a bit more inconsistent over the weekend, but if you had to ask me which player I like better now, I’d take Jackson. He’s not a catcher, but he’s got the athleticism and arm strength to be a very good rightfielder, and the bat will certainly play there with plus bat speed and above-average power. There may not be as much upside in Jackson, but I think the overall package is just a little better. http://mlbdraftinsider.com/2013/08/thoughts-on-perfect-game-all-american-classic/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter


8-14-13 – Through The Fence – Top 50 Prospects – 28. Ryan Castellani, RHP, Brophy Prep HS (AZ) - The 6’-4”, 200-pound right-hander has an advanced feel for the mound and can dial his fastball up to 92 mph with late, downward life. He adds a mid-70s curve and a change-up that sits in the 79-83 mph range and both project to above-average pitches down the road. He has good command of his stuff and there is still room for projection due to his size and easy mechanics. Committed to UCLA. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2014-mlb-draft-top-50-prospects/36463#mwWwsFxSUZy7YC5V.99


2013 East Coast Pro Showcase Top 50 Prospects    - 24. Bryan Dobzanski – RHP, Delsea Regional (NJ) - 6’4, 225 RHP sat 91-93. All state wrestler who has big time potential on the mound. http://www.ninebaseball.org/Wordpress/sullys-top-50-ecp-prospects/
