Drafted in the 3rd round (84th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2019 (signed for $3,000,000)
Much like 2017 third-round pick Mason House, Head is a pop-up prospect who turned himself into a coveted draft prospect with a very strong spring. Very few scouts had much track record with Head before this spring, but he’s impressed with his speed—he’s a plus runner—and some surprising pop from a smaller, wiry frame. House has hit some lengthy home runs this spring with a good-looking lefthanded stroke, although it begins with a significant bat waggle that he may need to clean up eventually. He shows above-average bat speed and has a chance to stick in center field. The Oklahoma signee is expected to be a difficult one to sway from his commitment. The success rate of pop-up prospects with little track record isn’t ideal, but Head had a great senior season and has several teams that seem interested in taking him early enough to give him something to think about.
