    View Draft Report
    Wall is unusual as a high school second baseman who could go in the top two rounds. Since the draft moved to a single phase in 1987, the highest drafted high school second baseman was Gosuke Katoh (No. 66 overall) in 2013 and Wall could go higher. Wall has played second base because of a well below-average throwing arm following labrum surgery in November 2011. It has improved but will likely limit him to the keystone (if he remains in the dirt) if it doesn't show significant improvement. But Wall does have athletic actions and defensive aptitude with his glove. The lefthanded hitter is one of the best pure hitters in the draft class, a potential 65 on the 20-80 scouting scale. He has an all-fields approach and supreme contact ability. Wall also has above-average raw power, and his contact frequency could allow him to reach that power potential. He is a plus runner who regularly posts 70 run times to first base, and his speed could make an impact on the bases and perhaps move to center field. He has an athletic build at 6 feet, 176 pounds. Wall separated his left shoulder this season and missed a few weeks. His medicals will likely play a significant role in his draft status. He is committed to North Carolina, the school that produced Dustin Ackley, whom Wall has been compared to.
