Drafted in the 40th round (1226th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012
Stover was a 17th-round pick out of high school by the Athletics and, even with an inconsistent season, he should go higher this time around. With Stover, scouts are buying the bat--and after missing most of last season to injury, the redshirt sophomore was pressing early this season. His bat heated up a little later in the year and he was hitting just .297/.377/.427 through 192 at-bats. The tools are there--Stover has an upright stance with a good swing that produces above-average raw power to all fields. He shows above-average bat speed but is working on pitch recognition. Stover has a pro frame at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds and is an average runner. Despite his athleticism, Stover will be limited to left field. He is a rough defender who gets bad reads on balls, is hesitant to dive for balls and has average arm strength. Just like Patrick Wisdom at St. Mary's, scouts believe in Stover's athleticism and track record for hitting and he'll still be drafted highly enough to consider signing.
