Perhaps Arizona State's most intriguing prospect, shortstop/outfielder Marcel Champagnie has prompted a split opinion among scouts. A Canadian who was a Twins draft-and-follow last spring, he emerged as an offensive force early before shaky defense at short dropped him into a utility role. He flashes above-average speed (4.2 seconds to first from the right side), but more often churns out below-average times, a sign of poor effort. He has strength in his hands and gap power. His defense was poor enough to cost him his regular job, but two scouts thought he had enough of a chance to stay in the infield to at least send him to pro ball as a second baseman, if not a shortstop.
