Looking at the 2015 Draft: 15th Best Prospect

Continuing our look at the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft we take a look at the #15 ranked prospect expected to enter the draft. As always we will include the mini scouting report from as we introduce the #15 prospect, Trenton Clark. Clark is a Senior at Richland High School in Texas and an outfielder. 

Here is the write up from

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

Clark reinforced his reputation as one of the best prep hitters available with his performance at the 18-and-under Pan American Championship in Mexico in September. He led Team USA to a gold medal by topping the team in nearly every offensive category, hitting .565 with three homers, 20 RBIs and five steals in eight games.

Clark has an unusual left-handed swing with a golf-style grip, but he makes repeated hard contact with his short stroke and above-average bat speed. Factor in his considerable strength and he should have at least average power. He also adds value on the bases with his solid speed and keen instincts.

While he's not a true burner, Clark has a chance to stay in center field as a pro. Left field would be his likely fallback position and the Texas Tech commit should have enough bat to profile there if needed.
