View Draft ReportScouts made the trip to Orono to see Maine's trio of draft prospects, led by center fielder Taylor Lewis, a scrappy lefthanded hitter. Lewis, at 6 feet and 200 pounds, was primarily a football recruit in high school and had an offer to play at Boston College. He is still raw with baseball, but he ran a 6.5-second 60-yard dash at Maine's scout day and has impressive forearm and wrist strength that results in gap-to-gap, line-drive power in batting practice. In games, Lewis takes a scrappy slap-and-run approach, which scouts think can be corrected through player development. Lewis is a good defender with a well below-average arm. He hasn't had a great spring, but some scouts see him as a top-10-round talent, especially if he can tap into his power potential, while others view him as a senior sign.
