9-30-14 - 9-30-14 – Through The Fence - 6. Minnesota Twins — Alex Bregman, SS, LSU - Bregman is a ballplayer. Aside from all of his intangibles and instincts for the game, he is also one of the better hitters in the 2015 MLB draft. After a sensational freshman year in which he hit .369/.417/.546 over 67 games with 16 stolen bases, he put together another impressive season as a sophomore. Over 63 games, he hit .316/.397/.455 with 16 doubles, six home runs and 12 stolen bases. He has drawn 51 walks to just 46 strikeouts over 130 career games, showing an advanced approach at the plate. He has been a member of Team USA baseball since his high school days, and you won’t find a better leader. Some are split on whether he can remain at shortstop, but even if he moves over to second, the bat would play up. http://throughthefencebaseball.com/2015-mlb-draft-mock-1-0/44039#46FUm3YdfAufQr1H.99
9-11-14 – Fangraphs Top 50 Players in Draft - 12. Alex Bregman, SS, LSU: One of the most famous players in college baseball had a bit of a down sophomore campaign and some scouts think he still fits better at 2B as a pro, but he flashes four above average tools and double-digit homer power from a simple swing. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/2015-mlb-draft-top-51/

B/R - LSU's Alex Bregman is the version of Trea Turner, a first-round pick in the 2014 draft, I always wanted to see. The Tigers shortstop has a slight build at 6'0" and 180 pounds but generates good pop. Bregman's strength comes from the wrists because there's very little load to his swing. He takes a short stride toward the mound, but his back elbow is set up high, and his hands are in position to move forward as soon as he decides to pull the trigger. There's plenty of bat speed to help him turn around good fastballs in pro ball. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2085268-mlb-mock-draft-2015-brs-official-early-predictions-for-next-years-top-10/page/2

6-4-14 - Mack - LSU SS/2B Alex Bregman is what you would call a pure hitter. He led his college team in hits, doubles, triples, and steals... as a freshman... earning him Baseball America's Freshman of the Year. He has a fair amount of pop and it's tough to find a weakness in his game. Scouts said he easily would have been one of the top ten picks in 2014, if he was eligible. Right now, I project him in the 1-3 range.
