Looking at the 2015 Draft: 8th Best Prospect

Continuing our look at the 2015 MLB First Year Players Draft we take a look at the #8 ranked prospect expected to enter the draft. As always we will include the mini scouting report from as we introduce the #8 prospect, Daz Cameron. Cameron is a right handed outfielder spending his time at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy in Georgia. 

Here is the write up from

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

An 18th-round pick in 1991, Mike Cameron overcame those humble Draft roots to win three Gold Gloves, make an All-Star team and hit four homers in a big league game. His son won't have to wait nearly as long to hear his name called in 2015.

One of just three players ever selected to play in two Under Armour All-America Games, Cameron emerged as a potential No. 1 overall pick as a sophomore. While his upside has leveled off a bit since then, he still profiles as a center fielder who could have at least solid tools across the board. In addition to his physical ability, he shows fine instincts in all phases of the game.

Cameron should have at least average big league power, but he doesn't worry about home runs at this point. The Florida State recruit laces line drives all over the field with a short right-handed swing and plenty of bat speed. While he's not a blazer, he can steal a few bases and chases down balls in the gaps.
