2 60 Oakland Athletics Yordy Cabrera 3B Fla. $1,250,000
The Yordy Cabrera story has several themes that all scouts are familiar with. He moved to the U.S. at age 14 from the Dominican Republic and is already 19. In other words, he's a prep senior who's two years older than junior-college freshman Bryce Harper. Cabrera, whose father Basilio is a former player and the Tigers' Rookie-level Gulf Coast League manager, has spent plenty of time around pro clubhouses and wood bats, and has two plus-plus tools. He has excellent raw power and one of the draft's strongest arms for an infielder, and he has the hands, average speed and actions to at least begin his pro career as a shortstop. Most believe he'll have to move to third base eventually because he's already 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, but should be able to stay in the dirt. As a pitcher, he has launched his fastball into the low to mid-90s, and his arm profiles for third or right field if he has to move. His value will depend on his bat, which remains raw and inconsistent despite his bloodlines. Cabrera kills mistakes, especially hanging breaking balls, but at times has trouble gearing up to velocity. He was unlikely to last past the supplemental round, and if his bat doesn't develop he could move to the mound.
23 708 San Francisco Giants Alec Asher RHP Fla.
27 816 Toronto Blue Jays Eric Arce C Fla.
Scouts do agree that Seminoles signee Eric Arce is the top hitter of the bunch, with a polished approach and good plate discipline, allowing him to get to his solid raw power. Arce's a decent receiver, while his arm rates well-below-average. He's unlikely to catch as a pro, and scouts wonder what other position he could play. At 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, he's an unlikely fit for first base. The 18-year-old also was suspended after he was arrested in April on charges of lewd battery and lewd molestation, in connection with an incident involving an 14-year-old girl. He returned to action when prosecutors dropped the case. The whole package might lead him to Florida State, where he could hit in the middle of the lineup immediately.
