Drafted in the 14th round (430th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2012
Proctor reminds scouts of former Louisville outfielder Josh Richmond, his former teammate at Oak Hills High in Cincinnati and a 12th-round pick of the Rangers in 2010. The two look alike and have similar builds and athleticism. Both also got hurt in their draft year, as Richmond had a hand injury and Proctor tore the meniscus in his left knee in late April. Arthroscopic surgery ended his season but won't prevent him from getting drafted. The 6-foot-2, 221-pounder's best tool is his plus-plus speed, though he could do a better job of using it. He has a lot of moving parts in his swing and doesn't control the strike zone, so he doesn't get on base or tap into his plus raw power as much as he should. He also doesn't take direct routes on flyballs in center field, though he does have a strong arm.
