4 149 New York Yankees Matt Duran 3B N.Y. $335,000
Duran, who just turned 18 in early May, generates plus raw power from his 6-foot-1, 220-pound build. He has a long swing and can drive the ball to all fields, but he sells out for home runs, and his power is his only plus tool. A third baseman for Hank's Yanks, a team sponsored by Yankees owner Hank Steinbrenner that also featured potential top-round pick Williams Jerez, Duran profiles better at first base in the future. He's limited defensively and has a fringe-average arm.
