Drafted in the 3rd round (80th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2006 (signed for $450,000)
Ford hit 16 homers as a freshman and .370 as a sophomore at Texas Christian, but he slumped horribly in the first half of the season after transferring to Oklahoma State. He snapped out of it in time to re-establish himself as the top college position prospect in the state. He's a switch-hitter who has a good stroke from both sides of the plate (especially lefthanded). He has loft in his swing and could add power if he can bulk up his 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame. A former shortstop, he's dependable if not flashy with the glove. He profiles as an offensive-oriented second baseman or utilityman as a pro.
