Over the span of one week last summer Plummer went from a national unknown to consideration as one of the top prospects in the draft class. Plummer made a very loud national debut at the East Coast Pro event and carried that success through the rest of the showcase circuit. A bout with mono caused him to lose some weight but he showed no ill effects this spring. The Kentucky recruit is expected to be the first first-round pick from Michigan since catcher David Parrish was picked in 2000. Perhaps more notably, he'll become only the third Michigan high school player taken in the top five rounds this century. Plummer has one of the most advanced approaches among this year's high school hitters with a relatively simple setup, bat speed and some leverage that gives him plus pull power. Generally his swing is geared more to driving the ball up the middle with a compact stroke that gives him good plate coverage. He does a good job of recognizing breaking balls already. At 5-foot-11, he's compactly but solidly built. Plummer projects as a potentially plus hitter with average to plus power. An average runner, few evaluators see him sticking in center field for long as a pro. His below-average arm leads most to believe he'll end up in left field.
