Draft 14 – Keaton McKinney, Willie Rios, Milson Ramos, Tyler Beede, Michael Kopech


12-9-13 – Pine Tar Press  -  49-RHP Keaton McKinney Ankeny HS (Arkansas Commit)- He will be a two way player at Arkansas as his bat has some boom to it and he should be a big time college run producer given the opportunity. But, his stuff on the mound, which includes an advanced change up, and solid curve ball make him a big upside pick for someone in June.

11-21-13 – BA Top 100 High School Players - 72 Willie Rios LHP/OF S/L 5-10 190 IMG Academy, Bradenton, Fla. Maryland http://www.baseballamerica.com/college/2014-high-school-top-100-with-commitments/

12-10-13 – TTF – Top 50 HS Players - 24. Milton Ramos, SS, American Heritage HS (FL) - A defensive whiz who should stick at shortstop, the 6’-1”, 160-pound right-hander showed great improvements at the plate during the tournament circuit. He has been clocked at 6.53 in the 60, showing above-average speed, as well. If he continues to improve offensively, he could be a first-round pick. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2014-mlb-draft-top-50/40532#zz88YJZTOG8iEa1Z.99

1-3-14 – TTF Baseball - 4. Chicago Cubs — Tyler Beede, RHP, Vanderbilt - This fall, the 6’-4”, 210 pound right-hander allowed just three runs on three hits over 14 innings. He also struck out 23 batters without walking a single one. Adjustments have been made in his release point and Beede is now due for a monstrous junior season for the ‘Dores. As a sophomore, he set a school record with 14 wins and posted a 2.32 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 103 K/63 BB over 101 innings. He allowed just 64 hits, holding batters to a .187 average. His four-seam fastball can touch 97 mph and sits in the 93-94 range. His two-seamer was sitting 91-92 mph this fall and had Wiffle ball movement on it, often resembling a change-up to batters. His curveball is a knee-buckler with 12-6 action, sitting in the low 80s. His change-up has great deception and was also rated plus by scouts this fall. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2014-mlb-draft-2/40753#ppGUqI6CbWFvzsPf.99
