One of the nation's most accomplished two-way high school players, Plouffe could be a dominant force at the college level if he chooses that path. Committed to Southern California, he could hit in the top three spots in the batting order for the Trojans, start at shortstop and take a spot in the rotation. It's unlikely he'll end up on campus, however, as he's targeted to go no worse than the second round. Scouts remain divided on Plouffe's future position, but most say he'll be a shortstop in pro ball. He prefers to be an everyday player. He has a wiry frame, soft hands and fluid middle-infield actions in the mold of Robin Yount, and he's been clocked at 91 mph off the mound. His range and arm strength are a notch below Matt Bush, the nation's top prep shortstop, but Plouffe may be a better hitter. He has a flatter swing path and the wrist action needed to drive balls. He's also a better runner.
