    Cordell, who came to Liberty all the way from San Jose, Calif., was recruited as a two-way player, but after pitching just five innings as a freshman he focused on hitting. He ranked as the top prospect in the Great Lakes League last summer after hitting .336/.371/.632 with six home runs and showing five-tool ability. He had not been as productive this spring, however, batting .289/.333/.451 with a week left in the season. His swing can get long and he'll sometimes get beaten by mediocre stuff, but he does have tools. He stands out with a 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame and flashes power. He's a plus runner with a strong arm and should be able to hold down center field. If he can make adjustments at the plate, scouts love his upside, and a team that believes in him could take him in the fifth or sixth round.
