    Rutledge could go in the first three rounds to a team that believes in his bat. He's a smooth athlete with good infield actions, in the Adam Everett mold. Rutledge doesn't make the flashy play in the hole because he's better going to his left than to his right. He has enough arm and range for short. Offensively, he had a solid season and runs a tick above-average, with sound baserunning instincts. He lacks strength in his hands and forearms and may never drive the ball enough to be a big league regular, despite his good defense. He also lacks plate discipline and has trouble catching up to good velocity.
