    The son of Braves general manager Frank Wren, Kyle had a tremendous freshman season as a dynamic leadoff hitter back in 2011. He was draft-eligible last year and sagged, hitting just .256 and falling to the Reds in the 30th round. As a junior, he has shifted from center field to left in deference to Brandon Thomas, an unsigned fourth-rounder from 2012 who returned for his senior season. That seems to have helped Wren get back to his old self, as he has had a big season and put himself back into the discussion as a top 10 rounds pick. Wren has explosive speed and was running easier this season, earning 70 grades on the 20-80 scale. He is more aggressive on the basepaths, improved his routes in the outfield and gets the most out of his below-average but accurate arm. He works counts and is stinging the ball more this year after adding 10-15 pounds in the offseason.
