18 574 Detroit Tigers Dylan LaVelle 3B Wash.
LaVelle joined Courtney Hawkins as the only two players to hit home runs at spacious Blair Field last summer during the Area Code Games. LaVelle has an average frame at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. Even with the home run and impressive power numbers in high school, scouts believe LaVelle's hit tool is better than his power, though both are average. He's a shortstop for his high school team but fits best defensively at third base, though his bat might not profile there. LaVelle can be a little stiff in the field, but has a strong arm. He is an average runner. He missed a few weeks this spring after dislocating his left shoulder diving for a ball at shortstop and will probably wind up honoring his commitment to Oregon State.
