A guy I'm interested in at #11 is Jon Denney, he's a catcher.
Q – How does Jon Denney compare with other catchers in this year’s draft?Jon Denney (C), out of Yukon High School (Yukon, OK), is one of the top backstops in a loaded 2013 prep catching crop. Denney’s defensive grades have vacillated over the past nine months, with a strong start to the summer giving way to inconsistencies in his catch-and-throw game before coming full circle this past weekend. With good playable power and bat speed already, foot speed is the only blemish on an otherwise top shelf draft profile. Today’s videos are from the 2013 Perfect Game World Showcase, held at Terry Park in Ft. Myers, Florida, and features Denney behind the plate and in the box.
Keith Law - I think he’s the top guy.
Excellent power with a short swing. Better hitter than receiver.C, Jonathan Denney, 6'3 210, R/R, Yukon HS, OK, one of the better arms for next year's MLB 2013 Free-Agent Draft, this kid brings it, shows solid strength in line drive stroke at the plate with good pitch recognition, maybe a bit too aggressive as a hitter, he'll learn as he matures, throwing and receiving skills are excellent for his age, shifts well and is alert and he's not afraid to throw to 2b with runners on base. Shows enough ability to be considered early round consideration for 2013. Potential ave hitter with plus HR power. Keep an eye on him. First seen at TOS in Cary in 2012 and has steadily made some adjustments since then. Gamer!!
Just bits of info on him."He's a right-handed hitter but he's also physically stronger (than Ciuffo and McGuire)," Rawnsley said. "He kind of compares to (2012 1st round draft pick) Clint Coulter as a hitter in that he's big and strong and just overpowers the ball to the middle of the field.
"And he's probably a better receiver than Coulter is too, and there are definitely scouts who have talked about him as a potential 1st round pick going into next year."
