    A 6-foot, 180-pound outfielder and lefthanded hitter, Drake stands out for his impressive athleticism and loud tool set. He’s an 80-grade runner who also has plus raw power from the left side, though scouts wondered about his offensive approach and pure hitting ability. He was one of the most impressive hitters at the 2023 MLB Draft Combine, where he showed quick, twitchy hands and a compact stroke that led to loud hits during the high school game and consistently impressive rounds of batting practice. He has tended to show a heavy pull-side approach in games, and will try to yank pitches down the right field line without much of a plan at the plate. If he’s able to improve that approach and use the opposite field more naturally, he has the sort of power/speed combination to be an impactful offensive player. Defensively, his speed alone should give him a chance to be a plus defensive center fielder, but like his offensive game, he also needs to improve his routes, reads and instincts. He is committed to Georgia Tech and is young for the class—he turns 18 just a few days after the draft.
