High School: Southeast Guilford HS, Greensboro, N.C.
College: Florida
Ht.: 5'9" / Wt.: 195 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 10th round (294th overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2015 (signed for $10,000)
Tobias was drafted in the 31st round by the Nationals in 2011 when he was coming out of a North Carolina high school, but went on to Florida, where he was named to the SEC All-Freshman team the next year. He battled injuries and wasn't as consistent in the next two seasons, going undrafted last year. He's bounced back in 2015 and has become one of the best seniors in the country. Tobias has returned to switch-hitting this season to great success. He led the Gators in several offensive categories in the regular season, including batting average (.366) and OPS (1.004). He has a contact-oriented approach and makes the most of his average speed. Tobias isn't the smoothest defender at third base, but has gotten the job done and nearly went the whole season without making an error. He's moved around the infield some during his career and provides good versatility. His best other spot is second base and he has some similarities to Josh Harrison. Tobias doesn't have the loudest tools, but he'll provide a team good value in this year's draft as an offensive infielder.
