First look: 2010 Draft Prospects (College outfielders)

By
October 1, 2009

Hitting the outfielders, this list is also drawn from the clubs Baseball Beginnings had a look at on the Cape. As we stated in our high school lists for pitchers, infielders, outfielders and catchers, and our college lists for pitchers and infielders, these lists here in September 2009 are not meant to be taken as definitive eight months before the June 2010 draft, but rather a signpost up ahead.

Moving onto infielders, this list is mostly drawn from the clubs Baseball Beginnings had a look at on the Cape. As we stated in our high school lists for pitchers, infielders, outfielders and catchers, and our college list of pitchers, our college lists are not meant to be taken as definitive this early in the process. As Letterman used to say, please, no wagering in the audience (unless you’re an agent or a team).

The Baseball Beginnings pre-draft 2010 college list isn’t made up of Boras Babies and Baseball America Beauties. Instead, we go by the players we have seen in person on the Cape or out West here in California. This list is being published in September 2009, eight full months before the June 2010 MLB Draft. As we stated in our high school lists for pitchers, infielders, outfielders and catchers, our college lists are not meant to be taken as definitive this early in the process. Don’t live or die by anything this early, as some guys will sink and some will swim. If you want hype, well, I’m not your kind of scout. As we say here at Baseball Beginnings, the players will rank themselves.

First look: 2010 Draft Prospects (High School catchers)

Catching prospects for the 2010 MLB Draft do not begin and end with Bryce Harper. As we conclude our Fall Preview of the 2010 draft here in September 2009, here’s a look at some of the catchers nationwide who will receive interest from scouts. As we said in our Fall previews of pitchers, infielders and outfielders, September previews are meant to be road maps rather than definitive lists. Some will rise, some will fall, and some names that are not listed here will come out of nowhere.

As we continue our early look at the June 2010 draft here in September 2009, here’s a look at some of the outfielders to follow. As with our pitchers and infielders list, this is a follow sheet and not a ranking service. We’ll give you the basics and let the kids be the final say on what players they become.

Continuing our sneak peak at the 2010 MLB Draft here in September, eight months before the draft, here is the first look at infielders. We’ve divided up the prospects by first basemen, third basemen and middle infielders. As we said in our 2010 High School Pitchers Draft Prospect List, always take follow-lists with a grain of salt simply because of the nature of baseball. Some will rise, some will fall, and some will come out of nowhere, guys who should be here, that we haven’t seen or heard of yet.

Baseball Beginnings is pleased to unveil our first NATIONAL look at the June 2010 draft here in September, 2009, eight months before the first name is called.

In the scouting world, every quality player is on a follow list. It’s a good bet that most of these players are already on such lists, but it’s important to remember that things will change over the next eight months – no list, no matter this one or one by a team should be considered definitive at this time of year, but should instead be regarded as a road map.

Some players who are not on this list will be hot and others who were hot in summer and fall will lose some luster in spring. That’s why you won’t see rankings here, because Baseball Beginnings works like a major league team. We’re not ranking players right now. And when we do, we keep them in-house. The world is full of people who will rank players. A good scout NEVER tells.

Every single player on this list has been seen by our scouting staff IN PERSON, meaning we don’t take our information from secondary sources. It’s on us.
