Sneak Peak: 2012 High School Top Ten

After watching the Junior National Showcase at Tropicana Field. Here is my top ten list for the class of 2012.

1. Lance McCullers- RHP/SS, Jesuit HS (FL)

2. Addison Russell- SS, Pace HS (FL)

3. Courtney Hawkins- RHP, CC Carroll HS

4. Stryker Trahan- C, Acadiana HS

5. Joey Gallo- 3B/RHP, Bishop Gorman HS

6. Jesse Winker- OF/LHP, Olympia HS

7. Zak Wasilewski- LHP, Tazewell HS

8. Albert Almora- OF, Mater Academy

9. Matthew Crownover- LHP, Ringold HS

10. Rio Ruiz- 3B, Bishop Amat HS


  1. I (15) live in Tampa and my best friend is friends with Lance McCullers. Is he a better hitter or pitcher? I know he wants to hit, not pitch, and is only pitching because his coach wants him too. I also know that he already has his eyes on the draft and is not big on going to college. Hope this helps!

  2. McCullers will find his future on the mound. Fastball sits low-mid 90s and he can touch upper 90s. If pitching doesn't work out for some reason though, his arm would play great from SS!

  3. just for peoples info Albert Almora was not even at Tropicana's showcase.

  4. Jake Drossner could be a top rounder 1-5 in the 2012 draft. hes a 6 3 Left handed pitcher, high 80s low 90s.
