2013 Mock Draft

Through the Fence Baseball has an eight-month head start on the June 2013 draft, posting a mock draft today.

Their pick? Austin Meadows, a 6'4" 200lb outfielder out of Grayson HS in Loganville, Georgia.

It's a solid choice - ESPNHS profiled him last June as a potential #1 overall pick in 2013. ESPNHS wrote:
Meadows has all the hallmarks of a first-round pick. The left-handed center fielder is a five-tool talent with the size, speed and athleticism of a Josh Hamilton and the sweet swing of an Andre Ethier. Put it all together, and it's easy to understand why he's projected as a first-rounder.

Here's a prospect video on Meadows.

It's way too early to tell who might go even top 10. So much can happen.

Also, "the sweet swing of Andre Ethier"? Has the writer not looked at his platoon splits?

Wow. Quite a talent. I like Austin Wilson from Stanford as well. If we go after Appel I'm going to be pissed. Stanek looks just as good and will be easier to sign. Also, since he is a college arm, it might only take two to three years to get the call up to the bigs.
