2018 MLB Draft Prospects From Delaware

1. Zack Gelof, SS/RHP, Cape Henlopen HS, Lewes, Del. (BA Rank: 333)
HS • - • 6-3 • 195 • R-R •

A toolsy infielder committed to Virginia, Gelof has a number of interesting tools including above-average running ability, defensive potential, above-average future power and a solid swing. He struggled in a major way at East Coast Pro over the summer, which gave a number of high-end decision-makers a poor look, but he’s a projectable infielder—most likely a third baseman—with a strong, 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame who has performed well in front of area scouts this spring. Gelof is a pitcher as well. He threw in the mid 80s over the summer with major crossfire and a low 70s breaking ball, but overthrew regularly and has more ceiling as a hitter.

2. David Erickson, RHP/3B, Cape Henlopen HS, Lewes, Del. (BA Rank: 413)
HS •  6-0 • 190 • R-R •

An undersized righthander at 6-foot, 190 pounds, Erickson has received the attention of scouts because of his impressive strike-throwing ability and a fastball that’s touched 94 mph. The Liberty commit also has an average curveball in the 78-80 mph range, which he used as a solid out-pitch during last summer’s East Cost Pro showcase. He has the makings of a solid, mid-80s changeup with fading action. There are some concerns with Erickson’s size, and he also has a long, hooking arm action in the back of his delivery, but that hasn’t seemed to hamper his control too much as of yet.

3. Kyle Hinton, RHP, Delaware (BA Rank: N/A)
4YR • Jr. • 6-2 • 210 • R-R •

4. Austin Elliott, RHP/OF, Cape Henlopen HS, Lewes, Del. (BA Rank: N/A)
HS • - • 6-2 • 195 • R-R •

5. Bryce Greenly, OF/RHP, Milford (Del.) HS (BA Rank: N/A)
HS • - • 6-3 • 190 • R-R •

6. Nick Patten, 1B, Delaware (BA Rank: N/A)
4YR • • 6-4 • 210 • R-R •

7. Brandon Walter, LHP, Delaware (BA Rank: N/A)
4YR • Jr. • 6-3 • 200 • L-L •
