Jonathan Mayo's latest is an overview of this draft class' outfielders, which he says has may have depth in good bats where the rest of the field may be lacking. Mayo suggests that two college outfielders could be drafted in the top half of the first round, but he especially likes the potential of this year's high schooler crop.
Mayo's Top 10 Outfielders:
- Bubba Starling, Gardner-Edgerton HS, Kan. (5)
- George Springer, Univ. of Connecticut (11)
- Mikie Mahtook, LSU (22)
- Joshua Bell, Dallas Jesuit HS, Texas (23)
- Jackie Bradley, South Carolina (29)
- Brandon Nimmo, Cheyenne East, Wyo. (30)
- Dwight Smith, McIntosh HS, Ga. (35)
- Brian Goodwin, Miami-Dade College (37)
- Alex Dickerson, Indiana (38)
- Derek Fisher, Cedar Crest HS, Pa. (42)
- Charlie Tilson, New Trier HS, Ill. (45)
