R-R Ht.: 6-4 Wt.: 215 Birthdate: 12/21/83
College Commitment: Stanford.
Scouting Report: Unlike his father John Sr., a thick Royals all-star in the 1970s, Mayberry is a finely tuned 6-foot-4, 195-pound athlete. He'll move to the outfield on a permanent basis once he turns pro, and he has the range and arm to be an asset out there. Mayberry's build is reminiscent of Jermaine Dye's. As great as Mayberry looks in uniform, some scouts wish he had produced more this spring. He has strength and a solid approach, yet he didn't feast on the subpar pitching he faced. There's some doubt about his bat speed. As one scouting director put it, "He could be Dave Winfield, or he could be Jimmy Hurst," alluding to the athletic outfield prospect who couldn't make it with the White Sox. Mayberry's mother wants him to attend Stanford, but teams believe he's signable as long as a Stanford scholarship is part of the package.
