Looking at the 2015 Draft: 14th Best Prospect

Continuing our look at the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft we take a look at the #14 ranked prospect expected to enter the draft. As always we will include the mini scouting report from as we introduce the #14 prospect, Nick Plummer. Plummer is an outfielder and a Senior from Brother Rice High School in Michigan.

FYI this is who, and of course a lot can change between then and now, I want the Yankees to take with that #16 pick if he is still available this June. This guy would be a perfect fit for both the team and the stadium in the Bronx. 

Here is the write up from

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

A relative unknown at the beginning of the summer showcase circuit, Plummer thrust himself into first-round discussion with standout performances at the East Coast Pro Showcase and the Area Code Games. His stock took a hit when he struggled at the World Wood Bat Association World Championship in October, but he still should become the first Michigan prep position players taken in the top three rounds since Billy Killian in 2004.

Plummer has a chance to be a plus hitter for both power and average. He has a quick left-handed bat and a mature approach, hitting gap to gap while doing a nice job of recognizing pitches and refusing to chase them out of the strike zone. He shows average to solid speed and can steal an occasional base.

Some scouts think Plummer has the instincts to stay in center field even though he's not a plus runner, while others think he's destined for a corner. If that happens, his arm will fit better in left field than in right. Wherever the Kentucky commit winds up, he's one of the most dangerous high school hitters in this Draft.
