Drafted in the 6th round (194th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2014 (signed for $211,800)
After an injury-riddled first year at Chipola, Mars has emerged on a talented team that as usual should contribute several players to the draft. Scouts like the way Mars plays the game. The switch-hitter should be able to produce a good average with a line-drive stroke that is quick to the ball, and he batted .380/.460/.584 this year. His below-average power is mostly to the gaps and he shows on-base ability with walks in 15 percent of his plate appearances versus strikeouts in 10 percent. Mars is a plus runner who gets out of the box well. While he has the ability to play center field, he is not a plus defender. The 20-year-old has a below-average arm and his power doesn't profile in a corner, but he has the versatility and athleticism to play all three outfield spots. The 6-foot, 195-pound Mars has a strong, athletic build and is committed to Florida State.
