2015 Draft Profile - OF - Daz Cameron - Eagle's Landing (GA) HS - UPDATED 11-13-14


11-13-14 - Minor League Madhouse  -    1. Arizona Diamondbacks: Daz Cameron, OF, Eagle’s Landing High School, Georgia - Ten years ago, the Diamondbacks were in the exact same situation they are now. With the first pick that year, they took Justin Upton, who spent six productive years with the team, with two All-Star appearances and a Silver Slugger. Could it be possible the D-Backs do the same thing ten years later? Daz, who is the son of former MLB outfielder Mike Cameron, is an exceptional athlete. His stroke is smooth and professional, allowing him to hit to all fields. He clocked in a 6.61 60 yard dash, giving him the speed to justify himself as a top of the order threat, as well as be able to contribute defensively. While Daz doesn’t have the body for the big leagues yet, with some bulking up, he could become a very powerful athlete. There are concerns that an average junior season could drop his stock, but he does have one more year of high school to go. He’s been compared to Derek Hill, who many thought was one of the better outfielders in last year’s prep class. If Cameron develops at the speed that Upton developed, he could be in the Majors by 2017, allowing him and Paul Goldschmidt to establish one of the premier 3-4 combos in the NL West. http://minorleaguemadhouse.com/2014/10/18/early-2015-mlb-mock-draft-part-1/

9-30-14 - 9-30-14 – Through The Fence - 2. Houston Astros* — Daz Cameron, OF, Eagle’s Landing HS (GA) - Daz did a great job of silencing his critics, for the moment, with his play as a member of 18U Team USA Baseball. He showed why he is going to be a star at the next level as he is an electric player with every tool in the shed. Over 12 games, he hit .405/.519/.667 with three home runs, 19 RBI, seven stolen bases and 10 walks to six strikeouts. Defensively, he is a stud and will remain in center field with his strong arm, 6.61/60 speed and instincts. Offensively, he has an advanced approach and can stroke it to all fields. He showed improved power over the summer, and you can tell he was brought up around the game as his baseball IQ is off the charts. As a junior, the 6’-1”, 185 pound right-hander hit .390/.523/.695 over 28 games with seven doubles, six home runs, 11 stolen bases and 18 walks to just 12 strikeouts. Committed to Florida State. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2015-mlb-draft-mock-1-0/44039#46FUm3YdfAufQr1H.99

9-11-14 – Fangraphs Top 50 Players in Draft - 8. Daz Cameron, CF, Eagle’s Landing HS (GA), Florida State commit: The son of Mike Cameron was getting Justin Upton-type hype as a prep sophomore but hasn’t taken the expected steps forward since then, though some scouts are anticipating a jump this spring; he’s still really good, but now compares less to Upton and more to the 23rd pick in last year’s draft, Tigers CF Derek Hill, as an overall prospect. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2015-mlb-draft-top-51/

Daz Cameron, OF, Eagle’s Landing HS (GA)

Like Rodgers, Cameron has all the tools and makes the game look incredibly easy with his athleticism and instincts. You can tell he grew up around it as his dad is Mike Cameron, and he carries himself like a seasoned pro. He will stick at center field and his arm continues to get stronger as he has been clocked at 91 mph from the outfield with accuracy. He has plus speed (6.61/60) and his bat speed is electric. The 6’-1”, 185 pound right-hander will gain more power as he matures and he has superstar written all over him. Over 28 games as a junior, he hit .390/.523/.695 with seven doubles, six home runs, 11 stolen bases and 18 walks to just 12 strikeouts. Committed to Florida State. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2015-mlb-draft-armour-aa-game-preview-part-1/43804#O6zgsDyBeLLBfCWU.99

7-9-14  -  B/R - 1. Tampa Bay Rays Select Ga. HS OF Dazmon Cameron - Nick Gordon was the son of a former MLB player who captivated scouts with his tools in the 2014 draft.

He's well-built already at 6'1" and 186 pounds with room to fill out and shows a very nice right-handed swing with more contact ability than his father and similar power. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2085268-mlb-mock-draft-2015-brs-official-early-predictions-for-next-years-top-10/page/2

6-10-14 - Daz Cameron, OF, Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy, Georgia
The son of former MLB outfielder Mike Cameron, Daz is one of the impact bats in the 2015 class.  His tools stand out on the field and are all at least above average.  Entering the summer, he is viewed by many as the top player in the class.  Cameron’s has already been selected to the Under Armour All-America Game.  http://bigleaguefutures.net/1/2014/06/10/2015-players-take-the-stage-high-school-edition/

6-4-14 - Mack - Everybody has been waiting for this kid to come around.

Eagle's Landing (GA) HS OF Daz Cameron is the son of ex-Met Mike Cameron and has the same kind of skills his pop had when he was a prospect... excellent speed, a cannon for an arm, and outstanding instincts. He has explosive hand speed with projectable power

Defensively, he's projected to stick in centerfield. It's very hard right now to find much wrong with his emerging game.
