With the exception of Nelson, scouts agree that Prasch is the state's best hitter. His bat is by far his best tool, and he's shown the ability to hit good pitching from either lefties (lashing line drives off Quigley when the junior was throwing 94) or righties. He has a quick, short stroke and a good trigger in his swing. He hit .440-10-40 this spring. Prasch doesn't have another plus tool, however, though he's an average runner. He resembles Diamondbacks infielder Chad Tracy in that he projects for modest power (10-15 home runs) if he moves to third base, as expected. He isn't a great defender as a prep shortstop, and he might be too stiff with hands and footwork for the middle infield.
