34 1043 Cleveland Indians Matt Fultz C Mo.
An offensive-minded catcher with legitimate lefthanded power, Fultz could have played his way into the first 10 rounds. While he continued to show a nice swing and pop this spring, scouts were disappointed with the way his body and intensity regressed. They have serious questions as to whether the 6-foot-1, 225-pounder can stay behind the plate. He has a below-average arm and will have to work hard to improve his catch-and-throw skills. If not, he'll have a lot less value as a first baseman. At this point, he may wind up at Kansas State rather than getting picked high enough to turn pro.
