    Canada's best position prospect is third baseman Dustin Houle, who has an average body at 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds. He has a compact, line-drive swing from the right side of the plate and has shown he can catch up to quality velocity. He sometimes has a little bit of a bat wrap, and scouts question whether he'll be able to hit enough to stay at the hot corner. Some would like to convert Houle to catcher because of his soft hands, strong arm and dirtbag mentality. Houle is also one of the youngest players in this year's high school class, as he won't turn 18 until November.
