Draft 14 – Michael Kopech, Mac Marshall, Kyle Marsh, Nick Gordon, Tyler Kolek

11-27-13 – Big League Futures Top 25 Poll –   23 Michael Kopech    RHP Mt Pleasant (TX) http://bigleaguefutures.net/1/2013/11/26/mlb-draft-top-25-prospects-poll/

12-10-13 – TTF – Top 50 HS Players - 13. Mac Marshall, LHP, Parkview HS (GA) - One of the better southpaws in the 2014 MLB draft, Marshall’s fastball sits in the low/mid-90s and he has worked hard on his delivery and command over the past year. He also flashed a potential plus curveball at the Perfect Game Nationals. At 6’-2” and 185 pounds, he is a great athlete who has been clocked at 6.7 in the 60. As a junior, he had 80 K/32 BB over 46 innings for one of the premiere programs in the country. Committed to LSU. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2014-mlb-draft-top-50/40532#zz88YJZTOG8iEa1Z.99

11-21-13 – BA Top 100 High School Players - 64 Kyle Marsh RHP R/R 6-2* 177 Spruce Creek HS, Port Orange, Fla. Central Florida http://www.baseballamerica.com/college/2014-high-school-top-100-with-commitments/

B/R – 11-21-13 - 18. New York Yankees: Nick Gordon, SS/RHP, Olympia HS (Fla.) - The son of former MLB closer Tom Gordon and brother to Dodgers shortstop Dee, Nick Gordon is one of the more intriguing prospects in this year’s draft class due to his high upside on both sides of the ball. At 6’1”, 170 pounds, Gordon is an outstanding athlete with the speed and defensive chops to likely remain at shortstop long term. At the plate, the left-handed hitter has good bat speed and barrel control but lacks projectable over-the-fence pop. On the mound, the right-handed pitcher can pop 92-94 mph with his fastball and spin an above-average curve. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1860341-2014-mlb-mock-draft-early-first-round-projections-for-all-30-teams/page/10

12-9-13 – Pine Tar Press  -  3- RHP Tyler Kolek Shepherd HS (TCU commit) 12/28/95- Big Texas kid with the quintessential “Texas body” who arrived late on the scene in baseball circles because he missed his junior campaign with a broken left arm. He arrived when he threw 97 at an Area Codes Game tryout and followed that up as a late arrival to the PG National at the Metrodome. His power arm is still finding command of his secondary pitches but it looks like the slider might end up being his second offering. His younger brother, Stephen looks to be a high pick in 2015.
