    Tawa was an all-state quarterback in addition to being a baseball star at West Linn (Ore.) High and won Gatorade State Player of the Year in both sports. He arrived at Stanford as a top recruit and started all four years for the Cardinal, but he suffered frequent injuries and hit just .267.318/.438 in his college career. Tawa’s best trait is his versatility. He’s a capable defender at shortstop, second base and center field and has the arm strength to play third base. He has flashed some wiry strength and feel for the barrel at the plate, but he’s never been healthy enough to have sustained success. His latest injuries this spring were lower back tightness and a recurring hamstring strain. Tawa’s defensive versatility interests some teams on the draft’s third day. He needs to stay healthy and prove he can hit to rise.
