With the midway point in the regular season in the rearview mirror, it’s time to take stock of the statistical performances of the top draft-eligible college players. Although the vagaries of small sample sizes still cloud the numbers at this juncture of the season and career numbers for players provide a great deal of information in addition to these two months of performance, these numbers are an important piece of the evaluation process for the top college players.
Every college player in the top 100 during the fall is included (minus injured players) and more than 30 players have been added to the list this spring, bringing the total to 127 players, all of which are in consideration to be drafted in a single-digit round. The top 10 percent in every category is highlighted in green, while the bottom 10 percent is highlighted in red. With 75 pitchers on the list and the benefit of rounding up, eight pitcher categories are highlighted, while five were for the 52 position players.
One thing to note is that quality of competition for these players can differ heavily in some cases. Especially for the pitchers, who only have at most nine starts on the season. A few favorable matchups against lesser-hitting teams can have an significant impact with so few starts at this point in the season.
• Although East Carolina righthander Jeff Hoffman possesses electric stuff--some of the best stuff in the class with three potentially plus pitches--evaluators have expressed their concerns about his performance in recent weeks, given the range where his stuff makes him likely to be drafted. Hoffman, who entered the season with a career strikeout rate of 6.8 per nine innings, has increased his strikeout rate to 8.5 per nine with a strikeout-walk ratio of 2.9.
His numbers remain below the historical performance standards for college pitchers drafted in the top 10. The 15 college pitchers drafted in the top 10 from 2009-2013 averaged 10.1 strikeouts per nine, with the range spanning from 13.9 (Stephen Strasburg) to 8.4 (Mike Leake). Hoffman’s career rate is 7.2, which is 14 percent below the lowest rate in that group, Leake’s 8.4. His career walk rate of 2.9 per nine is 19 percent higher than the group’s median (2.47). His strikeout-walk ratio (2.47) is the second-lowest in the group, which averaged 3.80.
But as one evaluator said recently “the stuff is the stuff.”
• A dynamic basestealer his first two years, North Carolina State shortstop Trea Turner’s speed has not impacted the game nearly as much this year as it did his first two years of college. Turner has had fewer opportunities to run this season (.389 OBP) than his first two years (.443 his first two seasons combined). His freshman year, when he stole 57 bases in 61 attempts, Turner attempted a steal nearly every game (0.97 per game). Turner, who was slowed by an ankle injury, stole 30 bases last year at a clip of 0.64 attempts per game. But that rate has fallen even further this season to 0.39 with 13 steals in 16 attempts. Turner has been shuffled among spots in the lineup throughout the season.
• While Louisiana State control artist Aaron Nola’s walk rate this season (1.83 per nine) is actually significantly higher than his first two years (1.04), his strikeout rate has also increased significantly, by more than three strikeouts per nine to 11.8. His strikeout-walk ratio stands at 6.5, the sixth-highest rate among prospects, and his ERA (0.70) is the second-lowest of any starting pitcher.
• Evansville lefthander Kyle Freeland is the sabermetric darling of pitchers from the first half of the season. He has the lowest walk rate at 1.8 percent of all batters faced. For perspective, the group average was 7.8 percent and the second-lowest rate is more than 70 percent higher at 3.1 percent (Vanderbilt righthander Adam Ravenelle and Wichita State righthander A.J. Ladwig). His strikeout rate (33.0 percent) is the fourth-highest among starting pitchers, giving him a strikeout-walk ratio of 18.8 that is more than seven times the group average (2.59). He produced these stats with a low-90s fastball and three offspeed pitches, including one of the best sliders in the class.
• Although he is propped up by an unsustainable batting average on balls in play of .466, the highest of any hitter, San Francisco outfielder Bradley Zimmer is having one of the best statistical seasons of any prospect, ranking in the top four in all triple-slash categories at .415/.488/.667. Scouts questioned Zimmer’s power production entering the season because of his swing plane, but he has the seventh-highest isolated slugging (.252) despite playing in a pitcher’s park (80 park factor). With the third most steals (17), the only offensive aspect where he has not excelled has been controlling the strike zone with strikeout (14.3 percent) and walk rates (8.9 percent) barely below the median (13.1 percent and 10.9 percent, respectively).
• Virginia first baseman/outfielder Mike Papi continues to demonstrate uncanny knowledge of the strike zone. He has walked in 20.5 percent of his plate appearances, the highest rate of any player and nearly twice the group median (10.9). He has also hit for power with an ISO of .202 in a pitcher’s park (80 PF).
• Kentucky first baseman A.J. Reed, who has 25 extra-base hits, has hit for more power than any other draft prospect. Not only is Reed tied for the Division I lead in home runs (14), the lefthanded hitter has a Bondsian ISO of .400, which is .119 points higher than the second-highest ISO (Wichita State first baseman Casey Gillaspie). Reed has walked nearly as often (14.2 percent) as he has struck out (15.4).
• UC Santa Barbara third baseman/outfielder Joey Epperson is dominating as a 23-year old against much younger competition and is emerging as a senior of interest. The NCAA batting average leader (.451/.528/.607) has demonstrated strong contact skills with the lowest strikeout rate of any hitter at 4.9 percent and has drawn more than two walks (11.1 percent) for every strikeout. The righthanded-hitting Epperson, who has at least plus speed and ran the 60-yard dash in 6.5 seconds in the fall, also has 11 steals, the seventh highest total, in 13 attempts.
• UC Irvine corner infielder Taylor Sparks has a strong physique and plus raw power that plays in game action with an ISO of .241. Although his walk rate has more than doubled this year (9.8 percent) compared to his career (4.4), he continues to swing and miss at a high rate. The righthanded-hitting Sparks has struck out in nearly one-quarter of his plate appearances (23.2), the second-highest rate. Sparks, a below-average runner, has been a run-erasing basestealer with three swipes in nine chances.
• One of the best athletes in the college class, San Diego State center fielder Greg Allen is showing the skills of a traditional leadoff hitter. Allen has at least plus speed and the ability to stick in center field with an arm that is at least average. His 20 steals are the most of any prospect and he has stolen at an 87 percent clip. The switch-hitting Allen controls the strike zone and walks (14.0) significantly more than he strikes out (9.9). As expected for a speedy line-drive hitter, Allen has a high career BABIP (.360). His below-average power is limited, demonstrated by his .057 ISO this season and .070 in his career.
• Texas outfielder Mark Payton looks like a solid senior sign who has performed throughout his college career and is an unsigned 16th-round pick from last year. The 22-year-old lefthanded hitter has third-highest walk rate (18.4) and has walked nearly three times for every strikeout (6.7) on the year to go with the third lowest strikeout rate. Payton, with a compact swing and 5-foot-8, 190-pound build, has below-average power to the gaps. His fringy-to-below-average speed limits him to a corner and his arm is likely best suited for left field.
• Mississippi State lefthander Jacob Lindgren moved to the bullpen this year and has produced exemplary results. With a heavy fastball that has been up to 95 mph and slider that shows above-average potential, the well-built Lindgren has struck out 45.8 percent of hitters, the most of any pitcher for a rate of 16.5 per nine. His average walk rate of 3.0 per nine produced a 5.4 strikeout-walk ratio. His strikeout rates coupled with a very fortunate BABIP (.191) have produced a 1.35 ERA in 26 2/3 innings.
• In 17 innings this year, Louisville righthander Nick Burdi has yet to allow an earned run. The flame-throwing Burdi, who touches 100 mph, has struck out 43.5 percent of hitters with a strikeout-walk ratio of 5.
• A back-and-forth run for the strikeout lead between Cal Poly lefthander Matt Imhof and Texas Christian lefthander Brandon Finnegan has Imhof ahead by a margin of 88-84. Imhof has struck out 36.5 percent of hitters with a strikeout-walk ratio of 4 against Finnegan’s 35.1 percent and 4.9.
• Vanderbilt righthander Adam Ravenelle has a great pitcher’s body and a power fastball that can sit 92-95 mph, touching higher, which he couples with strong strike-throwing ability this season. He has the second-lowest walk rate of all pitchers (3.1 percent) with a strikeout-walk ratio of 10. Although Ravenelle has only thrown 17 innings on the season, this demonstrates a substantial improvement in his control after walking 5.7 per nine in his first two seasons (21 innings).
• Florida Atlantic lefthander Austin Gomber, who is very young for the class and is 6-foot-5, ran his fastball up to 94 early in the spring and has shown the potential for above-average control, walking 1.5 per nine with a strikeout-walk ratio of 5.6.
• Southern California righthander Nigel Nootbaar has struggled to throw strikes out of the Trojans bullpen, walking 10.3 per nine and nearly one-quarter of hitters (23.5). His fastball can reach the mid-90s but he has length to his arm action and throws from a low arm slot.
• Cal State Bakersfield lefthander Austin Davis was rising up draft boards early in the spring with increased velocity, but he has racked up big pitch counts and struggled to throw strikes. Davis has walked 4.8 per nine for a strikeout-walk ratio of 1.5. In his second-to-last start, Davis threw 149 pitches sandwiched around 119 the week prior and 114 last weekend.
• Righthander Oregon reliever Jake Reed has effort to his cross-body delivery and low three-quarters arm slot, producing a walk rate of 15.9 percent and 5.9 per nine.
• Florida Gulf Coast outfielder Michael Suchy has an intriguing power-speed skill set, but has shown swing-and-miss tendencies with a strikeout rate of 18 percent. He has the fourth-lowest walk rate at 4.2 percent. Suchy has a big, physical and athletic body at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, but has just a pair of home runs although he does play in a pitcher’s haven (78 PF). The righthanded-swinging Suchy is hitting .288/.329/.425 on the season.
