Too early???



No, this isn't another plug for Heyward to be called up.  With the deadline to sign draft picks this year coming quickly,  is it to early to look to next years draft?

 

Here are some names to keep in mind.

We have no shot at Bryce Harper but he's next year's version Justin Upton (HS prodigy) if he can get eligible.

Kaleb Cowart - 3B/RHP from Georgia.  Good arm strength from 3rd but most likely projected as a pitcher.  Committed to FSU.

Tyler Austin - C/3B from Georgia.  More developed as a Catcher than a 3B but he hasn't looked too bad in the field.  As of now I don't think he's committed to any school.  He's a bit raw but has a good swing from the right side.

Zach Alvord - Middle Infielder from Georgia.  Has played just about every infield position but will probably be a 2B.  He drills fast balls but struggles a little bit on breaking pitches.  He does pull the ball pretty well.  Committed to Auburn.

Marcus Littlewood - SS from Utah.  Switchhitter who is very good defensively.  His dad is a coach and he is committed to San Diego.

DeAndre Smelter - RHP from Georgia. Kevin Brown is his HS coach.  His fastball is in the 93-94 range and he has a pretty good repeatable delivery.  He's also working on a Slider and Splitter in the 80s.

 

College players to look at (if they're eligible):

Tony Thompson, 3B  Kansas

A.J. Morris, P Kansas State

Louis Coleman, P LSU

Mike McGee, INF FSU

 

I'd kind of like to see Atlanta take Smelter or Cowart but it's still very early.
