Drafted in the 4th round (131st overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2001
McBeth is one of the best center fielders in the draft. His 6.6-second speed in the 60-yard dash allows him to cover lots of ground. He might have the best outfield arm in the nation and has made just three errors in three years. He's a talented athlete who returned kicks for South Carolina's football team as a freshman. McBeth had 15 homers entering regionals after swatting just 10 in his first two years. His one drawback is his bat. He hasn't approached .300 as a collegian because he lacks plate discipline and pitch recognition. Some scouts believe he should try pitching, speculating he could throw 92-94 mph.
