Born: Dec 28, 1989 in Baton Rouge, La. USA
High School: Catholic HS, Baton Rouge
College: Louisiana State

Drafted in the 5th round (167th overall) by the Miami Marlins in 2012 (signed for $75,000)
Austin Nola has been drafted twice already, never higher than the 31st round. He was playing at a higher level as a senior, having played with younger brother Aaron, a righthander who should be a high draft pick in 2014. The 6-foot, 188-pound shortstop plays with confidence, especially on defense, where his hands are sure and his feet surprisingly nimble considering his below-average speed. He lacks impact with his bat, though he has improved his plate discipline and contact ability slightly over the course of his career. He's a career .296 hitter who gives consistent effort and performance while lacking upside.
