    Vukovich had a standout winter playing basketball for his East Troy (Wis.) High team. He topped 2,000 career points and was a finalist for Wisconsin’s Mr. Basketball. His spring did not go nearly as planned. Vukovich’s Iowa travel-team league he played in was shut down almost as soon as it started. Vukovich had gotten a good chance to show what he can do during the previous summer, where he earned a spot on USA Baseball’s 18U National team. Vukovich is a big (6-foot-4, 210 pound) long-levered power hitter who gets to his power despite having almost no load to his swing. Vukovich could use a little more consistency to his swing—he was very up and down last summer. But with some modest mechanical cleanup, he has the potential to generate plus or better power. Vukovich most likely ends up as a corner outfielder or first baseman, but he’ll likely start his time in pro ball or at Louisville as a third baseman until he outgrows the position. His average arm works OK, although his arm stroke can get a little funky. As a big, athletic corner bat with present power, Vukovich has plenty of potential, but this abnormal spring may make it tougher for teams to have a full measure of whether to pay him now or wait a few years.
