Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (37th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in 2013 (signed for $1,450,000)
A third-team All-American, Hart never gets included in the same class of prospects as fellow Georgia prep outfielders Clint Frazier and Austin Meadows of Loganville. He's a different kind of player because power isn't a major part of his game, but he's not far off from them as a prospect. Hart has been a winner, playing for Parkview teams that won Georgia state titles in 2011 and 2012 as well as BA's national championship last year. He has his detractors, as some scouts don't like that he doesn't involve his lower half in his swing. Nevertheless, Hart has excellent hand-eye coordination, generates good bat speed and has a knack for finding the barrel of the bat. He consistently sprays line drives from gap-to-gap, has some polish in his plate approach and should be able to develop the plate discipline to become a leadoff factor. Scouts have reported him as a 60 runner turning in 4.0-second times to first base from the left side. His speed also plays in center field, where he shows some polish as well. The Georgia Tech signee performed most of the spring and was expected to go out in the first round or supplemental round.
