Scott Moore, ss

School: Cypress HS Class: Sr.
Hometown: Cypress, Calif.
B-T: L-R Ht.: 6-2 Wt.: 170 Birthdate: 11/17/83
College Commitment:Cal State Fullerton.
Scouting Report: Moore has supplanted the more heralded Sergio Santos as not only the top shortstop prospect in Southern California, but also the top player. He should be picked in the middle of the first round, with the nearby Angels, who select 12th, particularly interested. Moore has legitimate speed (6.7 seconds in the 60) and arm strength (89 mph across the infield) and excellent instincts for the game. His best tool is a lefthanded bat that has been compared to that of Athletics third baseman Eric Chavez at a comparable stage of development. Scouts say he should have no trouble adapting to wood while projecting 20-25 home runs down the road. He is quick to the ball, his bat stays in the hitting zone and he gets great extension. As an all-around player, Moore resembles Chipper Jones, with good hands, good body control and a good baseball body. He is better suited for third base than shortstop and lacks the range to play shortstop at the next level. The only real knock on the Cal State Fullerton signee is what some scouts perceive as cockiness.
