Montana's Top 2018 MLB Draft Prospects



1. Kaleo Johnson, INF, Montana State (BA Rank: N/A)
4YR •  6-3 • R-R •

Johnson has solid power and a good approach at the plate. He led Montana State with a .412 batting average this spring in 44 games and also slugged a team-high .845 with 17 home runs and 13 doubles. He's played third base and DH this spring but scouts see him as a left fielder or first baseman. He walked 18 times and struck out 21 times in 148 at-bats.

2. Adam Cox, RHP/INF, Montana State (BA Rank: N/A)
4YR •  6-3 •  R-R •

Cox has a quick righthanded arm and swing-and-miss slider that he used to lead Montana State with a 2.54 ERA with 47 strikeouts and 11 walks in 28.1 innings—all of those coming out of the bullpen. He also allowed the lowest batting average on the team, with opposing hitters managing just a .189 average against him.
