Who are some of the better corner infield prospects as of right now? I'd love to see the Tigers, they are sorely lacking there throughout there farm system.

...actually, they're sorely lacking pretty much everything in their farm, but the corner infield situation stands out to me.

There arent many this year. Alex Bregman of LSU is a SS, but some think he will move to third. Besides that, I dont see an obvious first rounder right now. Luken Baker(TX, HS) will either be a 1B or a SP. He has great raw power, and he throws in the mid 90s. Nick Plummer(MI, HS) profiles as a LFer, but might be able to play 1st. Chris Shaw(Boston College) is probably more of a 2nd round pick, but he could have a good year, and move up.

Its mostly corner outfielders, and middle of the diamond prospects right now that are moving up draft boards.

Yep. He's small, but he projects to have a good bat. Some scouts see his future being in the outfield.

Good. I know BPA and all, but the Mets don't really have any room at second. We have Daniel Murphy, Dilson Herrera, Wilmer Flores, Matt Reynolds, and L.J. Mazzilli in AA and above. If we take a pure second baseman in the first round, he's basically trade bait.

Happ profiles as a guy like Conforto. Advanced, probably wont be an all star, but should rise quickly. He should be able to help a lot sooner than later, and that looks like what the Mets need right now with a lot of their top prospects in higher classifications.

Edid:I see a lot of Brian Dozier in him.

We have two waves of prospects. We have one bunch of guys (Syndergaard, Herrera, Nimmo, Matz, Plawecki, etc.) in AA and above and another bunch (Conforto, Rosario, Molina, Urena, Meisner) that just played for the Brooklyn Cyclones.

Top 5 players to shoot up draft boards

1.Kyle Tucker||RF||Plant, FL
-I already have him just outside of the top 10, but most sites have him as a late first rounder at best right now because he didnt quite have a great summer. 6'4 with plenty of athleticism. Could possibly stick in center, but probably not. Has huge power and average potential with the bat.

2.Cody Ponce||RHP||Cal Poly Pomona
-No one knew his name before the Cape League this year, mainly because he is from a very small school. He was 91-95 in the Cape, and sat at 94-97 during the all star game. He will start to rise up draft boards. Fangraphs already has him as the #11 player in the class.

3.Brendon Davis||3B/SS||Lakewood, CA
-One of the most projectable players in the draft. This is mainly because he is 6'4 and only 165 pounds. He is going to fill out sooner or later, and that should help his power out immensely. Tons of untapped potential that is tied to him gaining weight.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxMz4A1BrV8

4.Kyler Murray||SS||Allen, TX
-Murray is one of the best quarterback prospects in the nation, and has committed to play at Texas A&M, but he is small, and has close to no future in football after college. He could be one of the best SS prospects in the draft if he actually wants to play baseball.
No Baseball Film

5.Demi Orimoloye||RF||St Matthews, CAN
-Huge project because he has only been playing baseball for a couple of years. He is about as raw as you can get, but he has tons of projectability. He stands at 6'4 225, so he wont get much bigger, but he has a chance to have huge power, and could be a very good defended in the outfield.

Internet high five if you guess who Tucker looks like with the bat.

Unless they're convinced he's a pitcher, the Cardinals won't draft Baker. The last time they drafted a first baseman in the top 10 rounds was 2006 and that was under a different regime. The highest the new regime has drafted a first round was the 11th round.

I personally think he has much more upside as a pitcher.

Im not good with comparisons, but the guy from Fangraphs says he's close to Tyler Glasnow.

6'6, 225, mid-90s fastball, potential plus pitch in his 12-6 curve, and a good slider. He only threw 58 innings for Duke this year because of arm soreness, and he didnt pitch this summer, so he does need to prove that he is fully healthy next year.
