    View Draft Report
    Pries is the younger brother of UCLA outfielder and fellow 2019 draft prospect Jake Pries. He is the more highly regarded of the two brothers as a projectable athlete at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds with power and speed in center field. Pries rarely strikes out, puts everything in play and handles velocity, projecting as an average hitter to go with above-average power. A hamstring injury limited him to designated hitter duty most of the year, but he returned to center field by the end of the season and showed average speed underway. His arm is playable. Pries put up strong numbers playing against Division II competition in a small home ballpark, so some evaluators are skeptical. Others see a good athlete and well-rounded player worthy of a pick in the top 10 rounds.
