Proctor has been Rice's shortstop since the second game of his freshman season. He immediately moved now-Rays infielder Tristan Gray to second base and has been Rice's starter at shortstop ever since. He's blossomed at the plate as a junior, hitting .346/.434/.514 with seven home runs as of mid-May. The question for Proctor is whether he can play shortstop in pro ball. His range is fringe-average at best, although his hands work fine and his above-average arm is plenty for the position. Proctor has enough bat to be a viable second base option if shortstop doesn't work.
