Name: Jake William Hager
Born: Mar 4, 1993 in Henderson, Nev. USA
High School: Sierra Vista HS, Las Vegas
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 170 lbs

Drafted in the 1st round (32nd overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011 (signed for $963,000)
Hager doesn't have one standout tool, but he can do a little bit of everything and always plays hard. He's an average runner but has nice actions at shortstop with an above-average arm. Hager is a good hitter and performed with wood at showcase events last fall. He has some pop, though he profiles as more of a gap hitter with average power. His tools play up because he's the prototypical baseball rat. He has passion for the game and is typically the dirtiest guy on the field, playing with toughness and energy. He's a leader on the field with good makeup, exactly what you want from a shortstop. He could go as high as the second round and if he doesn't sign, he'll head to Arizona State.
