Notes from the Field: World Team


Christopher Crawford

Notes on every single player from the World roster


Ketel Marte, SS, Seattle Mariners – Marte had a solid if unspectacular showing during BP, spraying line drives and showing off the quick wrists that give him a chance for a plus hit tool when all is said and done. He picked up hits from both the left and right side of the plate, but unfortunately was thrown out twice; once on a caught stealing and once on a quality throw frome Michael Conforto. The upside doesn’t match some other names here, but he should be a starting middle-infielder someday, more than likely at second base.

BP Unfiltered: Daily Draft Video: Edwin Diaz


Nick J. Faleris

Daily exclusive video series designed to familiarize you with the names you need to know leading up to the 2013 amateur draft.

Edwin Diaz (SS/INF), out of Ladislao Martinez Otero High School (Vega Alta, PR), is a projectable infielder with offensive upside and smooth enough actions to potentially stick up-the-middle.  Diaz shows well in the field with the glove, arm and lower-half, with ultimate size and quickness likely the determining factors as to which infield position he eventually calls home at the pro ranks. There is present pop in the barrel, produced by a leveraged swing with natural lift, though each can lead to empty cuts at present -- particularly against quality secondaries. Today’s video is from the 2013 Perfect Game World Showcase, held at Terry Park in Ft. Myers, Florida.
