Scouting Report: Drew Vettleson, OF, Central Kitsap (WA) HS (2010 Draft)

January 5, 2010

Drew Vettleson has committed to play college baseball for Oregon State, where I’m sure he’s heard plenty of Jacoby Ellsbury comparisons.

I had another former Pac-10 player in mind when I scouted him. As the top junior in Washington in 2009 and a two-way player who moonlighted in basketball, my future impressions of Vettleson are purely as an offensive player. We’ll have video of him in the future. In the meantime, here’s what the scouting report says.

Drew Vettleson
6-1, 185
B/T: L/R
Central Kitsap HS/Bremerton, WA
Games Seen: 4, Innings: 20

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Lean and lanky frame, narrow hips and shoulders, slender physique.

STRENGTHS: Fast hands and effortless swing creates consistent hard contact. Should be offensive corner outfielder, both for average and power. Third tool is above-average arm, enough for right field on a good team. Good athlete showing balance and coordination with plenty of physical projection.

WEAKNESSES: Average runner and strength yet to fill in. 

SUMMARY: Plus hitter with power potential; only question I have is when it’ll come. Reminds me of Andre Ethier for left-handed stroke and power. Based on summer look, believe this player would be better in college and then fast-tracked pro. Deserves prospect label.

GRADES (Present/Future):
Hit       30/65
Power 30/65
Run      50/50
Arm     60/60
Field    50/50

Overall Future Potential: 58

    I was drafted out of high school, and I couldn’t hold a candle to Drew. He is my cousin’s-cousin, and I’ve watched him grow up throwing with both hands…in amazement. A DEFINITE stud
