    I just want to mention a guy again who might not be a 1st rounder, but is definitely worth keeping an eye on and it's New Mexico Lobos 1B/3B DJ Peterson. Here are a few scouting reports on him.

    Also, for pitchers, three HS names that definitely interest me are Kohl Stewart, Clinton Hollon, and Trey Ball.

    One thing I find interesting is how every site seems to differ on who is the top HS catcher. Some have Jeremy Martinez, some have Jonathan Denney, and the above has Reese McGuire. It does seem that this is a deep HS catching class with a lot of guys projected to stay behind the plate.

    what do you know about him, what can you tell us?

    I already posted this tidbit about him earlier in this thread.

    Jeremy Martinez, C, Mater Dei HS (CA)

    In a class deep on prep catchers, Martinez stands out as the best due to his abilities on both sides of the plate, as well as his high understanding of the game and polish. As a member of U18 Team USA, he won back-to-back gold medals in 2011 and 2012 and is a regular in the top summer events. His strong arm and footwork will allow him to be a gold glove-caliber defender at the next level. Offensively, he has a batting stance reminiscent of Albert Pujols and his bat speed allows him to drive the ball to all fields with developing power. He has a very good approach at the plate, on the field and a high character to boot.

    More on him.

    Baseball (and football) powerhouse Mater Dei catcher Jeremy Martinez has all the tools to be a standout catcher at the professional level.

    His defensive ability is off the charts. His pop-time (1.87) stands out and compares to some of the best backstops playing in the big-leagues today, who average around 1.80. His arm is plenty strong and he has incredibly soft hands. At 5’11” and 195 pounds he has the size to stay behind the plate for the long-haul.

    At the plate, Martinez is also a threat. He’s more developed than Austin Hedges, who was drafted by San Diego last year, and who was also noted for his superior defensive ability. Hedges earned a $3 million signing bonus despite being selected in the second-round. Martinez projects to have above-average power and should be a decent hitter for average as well.

    Jeremy Martinez
    Grad Year:
    2013
    Hometown:
    Fountain Valley, CA
    Position:
    C
    High School:
    Mater Dei
    HT/WT:
    5'11/190
    College Commitment:
    Southern California
    MLB Draft:
    2013: TBD
    Scouting Report: Jeremy Martinez was one of only two underclassmen in the 2011 game. He came in the game as the DH in the 4th inning, and took over catching duties in the 6th. He is a very well rounded player, with advanced tools both defensively and at the plate. His catch and throw ability was highlighted by rhythm in his footwork and a fluid release with arm strength around 50 on the 20-80 scouting scale. His setup and actions in the box very much resemble those of Albert Pujols, which his stroke is loose and easy through the zone. He maintained excellent balance, and showed barrel accuracy and the ability to consistently deliver hard line drives from gap to gap. His combination of tools, skills and a steady approach to the game make him an exciting young catching prospect. He has committed to the University of Southern California.



    Here is some video on him

    Jeezus H Kryst, at 18 years old he already looks more polished than Josh Thole.

    This is a fair point.

    I Would So Great

    To finally develop a catcher that can hit and also be a defensive stand out. Truly the hardest positon to scout, project and develop.

    I'd be grateful if they don't lose him in the Rule 5 draft.

    HS catchers have an extremely high fail rate.
