Devin Mann
Name: Devin Jacob Mann
Born: Feb 11, 1997 in Columbus, IN
College: Louisville
High School: Louisville
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 180 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 5th round (164th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2018 (signed for $272,500)
A career .286/.404/.454 righthanded hitter with 14 home runs in 538 at-bats for Louisville, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Mann has shown flashes of greatness but has never quite put it all together. He's a disciplined hitter who works deep counts, controls the strike zone well and spoils pitcher's pitches until he gets something he likes. In 2018, he's walked more (53) than struck out (43) and has at least solid-average hitting ability with a quick, level swing that currently produces more doubles than over-the-fence pop. He nearly raised his season average to .300 in one week with a sizzling-hot ACC Tournament in late May in which he homered twice, but in that same tournament he committed three costly errors at second base--two in the championship game against Florida State that led to big offensive innings. Mann is a fringy defensive second baseman at best, with an average arm and range but at times clunky hands and awkward reactions. At one point a plus runner, Mann has slowed to fringier speeds, limiting his defensive versatility. Mann will get drafted for his track record of hitting at Louisville and if teams believe there's more power potential to unlock, but he'll need to ride that bat in pro ball due to his lack of defensive tools. He could eventually move to left field at the next level.
