(Billy Beane from Oakland)
|Provided he shows up in the spring with 80 speed and a clear shortstop profile, yeah he's a dude. I think the toughest question for evaluators will be placing a handicap on his ability to stay healthy through a long pro season. He was dinged up through the spring/summer, and the game will only get more physical. For his profile, it's not just about staying in the lineup, he needs the speed to play to its utmost in order to be a true impact talent.
Fisher is a superior draft prospect at this point. Zimmer made some noise this summer and has, I think, artificially inflated his value. He's still a projection talent, albeit an interesting one, but you're reliant on more changing (strength, swing, etc.) with Zimmer than you are Fisher. Both could fluctuate between first and third rounder depending on their springs, but for my money it's Fisher ahead of Zimmer right now by a decent amount. (Nick J. Faleris)

(Shawnykid23 from CT)
|UVA's Derek Fisher (OF), SDSU's Cederoth (RHP), ECU's Hoffman (RHP), Marymount's Megill (RHP), Texas A&M Mengden (C/RHP).
The USA CNT has already taken a lot of the top guys, but they will be swinging through the northeast, too, so check them out. (Nick Faleris on the MLB Draft)

|Sure, along with other super early candidates, like Alex Jackson (Rancho Bernardo HS, Calif.), Derek Fisher (UVA), Aaron Nola (LSU), and Nick Gordon (Olympia HS, Fla.)? (Nick Faleris)|
