Like Price, Waldrop is considered a tough sign and has committed to Vanderbilt. He's had considerable success in high school, leading Farragut High to the state 3-A title last year and a No. 3 national ranking this season. He didn't yield an earned run in his first 51 innings while batting .477-13-63. Scouts like him better on the mound for pro ball, as he throws an easy 88-91 mph fastball with an above-average spike curveball, while showing a feel for his changeup. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Waldrop would go both ways for Vanderbilt. He has excellent raw power, enough athletic ability to play the outfield and runs well under way. The Braves are said to be looking at him with their first pick, the 71st overall, but it may take seven figures to sign him away from Vanderbilt.
