12 364 Oakland Athletics Zac Elgie 1B N.D.
The only thing stopping first baseman/outfielder Zac Elgie from topping Darin Erstad (Mets, 13th round in 1992) as North Dakota's highest-drafted high schooler ever is signability. Elgie is a 6-foot-2, 195-pounder with impressive bat speed. It has been hard for scouts to see him against good competition, but he did help his cause by slugging 34 homers during American Legion play last summer. Though he has played mostly first base, he has enough athleticism and arm strength to move to an outfield corner or possibly behind the plate. Also a pitcher as well as an all-state performer in football and basketball, Elgie has committed to Kansas. He's believed to be unsignable past the second or third round, and he won't go that high in the draft.
