Drafted in the 23rd round (713th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2012
Drafted as a catcher in the 45th round out of high school three years ago by the Brewers, Stock hurt his shoulder as a freshman at Southern California. He did little catching for the Trojans or in 2011 at Pierce (Calif.) JC, but he had enough action behind the plate this year at Nebraska to pique the interest of scouts. He has more than enough arm strength to catch but would have to improve his receiving and footwork. If he can pull that off, he'd have much more value than he does as a first baseman. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder offers lefthanded power and makes consistent contact, but scouts don't envision him providing enough offense at first base. The Cardinals drafted his brother Robert in 2009 and converted him from catcher to pitcher this year.
