Check out Marcus’ in depth report on Brady McConnell.

In the field, McConnell has smooth hands and quick feet for a player with his height. He’s not a plodder at all. His strong arm allows him to make all the throws from short and could facilitate a move to third, as well.

I wrote yesterday that Bobby Witt Jr. and CJ Abrams (#6 overall) will forever be linked because of last night’s draft.

Abrams is a phenomenal athlete. He’s a 70-grade runner with ++athleticism and is a lock to stick at SS, unless a team just wanted to move him into the outfield. He possesses one of the better hit tools in the draft and has actually flashed some impressive raw power from the left side. The only real tool that Abrams hasn’t shown much of to date is the ability to access his power in games on a consistent basis, something Bobby Witt Jr. has had no problem with.
