    The starting third baseman for UCLA's 2013 national championship team, Kramer has returned well in 2015 after missing last season with a torn labrum. He had successful surgery and has come back with solid-average arm strength while playing a smooth shortstop for the Bruins, who won the Pacific-12 Conference and were the top seed in the NCAA tournament. Kramer's a huge reason for that as a savvy player with present strength and feel for the barrel to go with a polished offensive approach. Kramer has enough power to command pitchers' respect and plays the game with a combination of calmness and intensity that helps him be the Bruins' leader. He lacks a true plus tool and likely fits better defensively at third base as a pro, without the power to profile at the position. Kramer's savvy and high floor, as well as the fact he already has his degree and is signable as a fourth-year junior, should send him out higher in the draft than his pure tools might suggest.
