View Draft ReportCody Koback is more toolsy than the typical Wisconsin position prospect. The 6-foot, 185-pounder has well above-average speed, though he's still learning to make the most of it on the bases and in center field. He makes consistent contact and has gap power from the right side of the plate, and his arm is solid. After an elbow injury limited him to nine games in 2010, he rebounded to bat .424/.516/.701 this spring. He proved himself against better competition last summer in the Northwoods League, where he hit .305 with wood bats.
