Perfect Game Presents

East Coast Pro Top Prospects

by David Rawnsley


On December 5, 2012, Baseball Prospectus and Perfect Game announced a partnership to help promote and cover the game at both the amateur and professional levels. As a result of this partnership, Baseball Prospectus subscribers will now get the opportunity to read some of the great premium content being published by Perfect Game for its members. Today, courtesy of Perfect Game, we bring you this special report by David Rawnsley.

These rankings are only a snapshot of the 2013 East Coast Professional Showcase, a four-day event, and do not reflect this scout’s or Perfect Game’s opinion on the overall rankings of the players in the big picture.

Top Position Prospects

SS Nick Gordon (Avon Park, FL): Gordon did all his normal things: play defense, run the bases with plus speed and collect a number of singles up the middle, along with throwing 90-92 off the mound for three easy innings. I’m still surprised by the number of questions I continue to get on the question of player versus pitcher on Gordon.

OF Braxton Davidson (Arden, NC): Davidson boasts one of the best combinations of a hit tool and power in the 2014 class, perhaps the best. I’ll see Alex Jackson all next week, and it’s one of those two.

OF Carl Chester (Longwood, FL): Chester has serious tools and performed at a very high level, always an ideal combination. His speed impacts the game both offensively and defensively, but he has some serious juice in his bat as well.
