Looking at the 2015 Draft: 13th Best Prospect

Continuing our look at the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft we take a look at the #13 ranked prospect expected to enter the draft. As always we will include the mini scouting report from as we introduce the #13 prospect, Alex Bregman. Bregman is a Junior at LSU where he mans the shortstop position for the Tigers Baseball team.

Here is the write up from

Scouting grades: Hit: 60 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 55 | Field: 45 | Overall: 55

A New Mexico product, Bregman ranked as one of the best pure high school hitters in the 2012 Draft, but slid to the Red Sox in the 29th round because of his steadfast commitment to Louisiana State. The consensus national freshman of the year in 2013, he's now one of the top bats in this year's college crop.

Bregman has an unconventional right-handed swing, but it works for him because he has a very quick bat and controls the strike zone well. He has some pull power and could develop average pop if he adds some loft to his stroke. He has average speed that plays up because of his instincts.

Because of his size, tools and aggressive nature at the plate, Bregman regularly gets compared to Dustin Pedroia. Like Pedroia, he's a college shortstop headed for second base in pro ball because he lacks the quickness and fluid actions to stay at the more difficult position. His arm and assets allow him to make plays at shortstop.
