View Draft ReportLudy didn't become a full-time regular for Baylor until his junior season in 2011, then blossomed into the Big 12 Conference player of the year this spring. He hit .368 with 15 homers--three times as many as he totaled in his first three seasons. The 5-foot-10, 210-pounder did a better job of tapping into his power this year after giving up switch-hitting and batting solely from the right side. A good receiver, he has an average arm and threw out 28 percent of basestealers this year entering super-regional play.
