7. Kirby McMullen, 3B, Florida


One of the biggest catalysts for Florida’s run to the No. 1 spot in the rankings, McMullen emerged as a key piece of the lineup in 2020 after serving as a part-time player and a reliever through his first three seasons in the program.


He finished the season hitting .278/.458/.407 with four doubles, good for a tie for second on the club, and a team-leading 14 walks, which was a big part of the Gators showing impressive lineup depth. He’s already said he intends to return in 2021.

No. 176: Western Michigan OF Blake Dunn


The Saugatuck graduate hit .374 with 16 extra-base hits in 49 games in 2019. The three-year starter is a .338 hitter with the Broncos.


BA scouting report: "A multi-sport athlete coming out of high school, Dunn has some of the best raw tools in the upper midwest. He’s a plus runner who has a potential 70-grade arm from the outfield, and his premium athleticism allows him to be an impact defender. He chases down balls deep in the gaps and creates outs with his arm as well."

Justin Foscue, 2B, Mississippi State (No. 58 to No. 32, up 26 spots)


The U.S. collegiate team's starter at second base last summer, Foscue didn't so much take a step forward this year as he reaffirmed the notion that he excels at making hard contact while controlling the strike zone and playing up the middle. College players with trustworthy bats and high floors are going to do well in the shortened 2020 Draft.

15. Nick Bitsko, RHP — Central Bucks East HS (PA)


Bitsko is intriguing beyond the frame and raw stuff, because he’s also a bit younger than most prep prospects — he won’t turn 18 until June 16.


“I only saw Abel a little bit here and there, but from where we stand, if we want to add a kid with big upside, time to develop and now-stuff, this (Bitsko) is probably where we go.”


Bitsko is up to 97 mph and has a plus curveball. He throws a lot of strikes and there’s promie with the changeup, too.

            25. Gage Workman, 3B, Arizona State


https://motorcitybengals.com/2020/04/08/gage-workman-detroit-tigers-mlb-draft/


Workman, a third baseman for Arizona State University, was drafted in the 14th round of the 2017 draft by the Milwaukee Brewers, but he’ll be off the board long before then this time around. He’s slashed .306/.381/.500 in his college career, but scouts resonate with the feeling that even that  performance hadn’t reached his true talent level. He’s tall and strong, offering talent on the field and legitimate potential on both sides of the plate. He was projected to be drafted by the Tigers with their second pick in the 2020 draft by the Prospects Live team, so let’s take a look at what he has to offer.
