2 89 New York Yankees Austin Aune OF Texas $1,000,000
Aune led Argyle HS to the Texas 3-A football championship game, passing for 3,411 yards and 33 touchdowns while rushing for another 538 yards and nine scores. A solid college quarterback prospect with a Texas Christian football scholarship, he also has baseball potential and the intention of playing both sports for the Horned Frogs. If he's signable, he'll fit into the first five rounds of the draft. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounds Aune offers an impressive package of tools, starting with plus raw power and arm strength. He has a balanced lefthanded stroke and solid speed, and scouts praise his makeup as well. He's still raw and hasn't shined at showcase events because he has split his time between two spots and hasn't faced much in the way of baseball competition. A shortstop at Argyle, he may not have the hands to stick in the infield. While he could get a shot at third base or center field, he's likely destined for right field at either TCU or in pro ball.
