Ethan Paul
Name: Ethan Gregory Paul
Born: Aug 27, 1996 in Seattle, Wash. USA
High School: Newport HS, Bellevue, Wash.
College: Vanderbilt
Ht.: 5'10" / Wt.: 180 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 9th round (274th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2019 (signed for $57,500)
A four-year starter for Vanderbilt, Paul slid over to shortstop this year after being the Commodores’ everyday second baseman the previous two seasons. A 26th-round pick of the Pirates in 2018, Paul will likely go much earlier this year as a senior money-saver. He’s a productive college player who is finishing his career with his best season (.322/.386/.513), and his fringe-average arm has looked better at shortstop than it did at second base. Paul doesn’t have many average tools—he’s a 40 hitter, a 40 runner and has 40 power—but he has a chance to be an average defender at second base as a pro. With his ability to handle shortstop in a pinch as well, he has a utility infielder profile as a pro.
