Few players performed better this spring than the powerful Stokes. He set a Texas prep record with 23 home runs, including a number of tape-measure blasts, while batting .541. His power ranks at the top of the charts--a perfect 80 on the standard 20-80 scouting scale. With average speed and arm strength and a chance to play a position other than first base, he also showed scouts he's not one-dimensional. Scouts praise his makeup. He competes hard and enjoys playing the game. On talent, he grades out as one of the top two players in the draft, but his reluctance to cut a predraft deal may push him down two or three spots.
