    Coats positioned himself as a possible first-round pick in last year's draft by helping Texas Christian to its first-ever College World Series and set a school record with 99 hits in 2010 before turning in a strong summer in the Cape Cod League. Instead, his righthanded swing got longer and his pitch recognition regressed, and he dropped to the Orioles in the 12th round. He nearly signed with Baltimore but ultimately returned to the Horned Frogs, where he turned in a season similar to his 2011 performance. Coats could be a slighty above-average hitter with average power, making him attractive as a senior sign. He fits best in left field with his fringy speed, arm and defense. He missed the Mountain West Conference tournament with a sprained right knee.
