    As promised, here's a statistical look at a sleeper in the draft. We'll cover a few more over the upcoming two+ weeks until the June 5th draft.

    Josh Satin 2B California Sr.

    A former third baseman, Satin shifted to second following shoulder surgery this past off-season. Per a scout who followed him at the Cape Cod League, Satin "looked better" at second, and should be able to stick at the position in the majors one day.

    Currently Satin is hitting .388/.507/.730 with 17 homers, 10 doubles, and a 1.075:1 BB:K ratio, he's also 6/9 in stolen bases. That .507 on-base percentage places him in the top 30 of OBP, and his numbers match up favorably to those of Gordon Beckham, a projected top-10 pick.

    Another college bat with great plate disclipline and power.

    Haha, yeah, is it just me or is that really really old for HS? I didn't turn 20 until going into my junior year of college! I would hope he would put up monster #s at that age against guys two years younger than him...Look at it this way, he's only 2 months younger than Tabata...

    I'm looking to see if he is committed to anywhere, nothing yet.

    EDIT:
    Committed to San Jacinto JUCO, but according to the BA report he may sign with Rice...
    He'll cost some money to sign...

    San Jacinto = Rice's minor league team.

    Yankees 5th round pick, Chris Smith

    Smith is 6′2″, 200 lbs, and committed to USC. He’s a lefty with a nice power stroke, but the impressive thing here is that he hit .708 for Centennial High School in Compton, CA this past season.

    That’s not a typo.

    I’ll spell it out just to make certain. He hit Seven-Oh-Eight.

    Smith looks like he could be a diamond in the rough, and his coach certainly thinks so:

    “He’s a terrific hitter,” Centennial coach Gerald Pickens said. “When he hits, the team gets inspired because they know the scouts are watching and try to piggyback on that.”

    Pickens coached current Angel farmhand Andrew Toussaint at Centennial and Boston Red Sox center fielder Coco Crisp with his C-BATs Academy team, so he knows something about talented prospects.

    “Chris does things they couldn’t do,” he said. “He has dynamite strength and the ability to hit with power to all fields. They had power to only one field.”

    “My strength is my bat,” said Smith, who feels his best position is left field, but has been showcased at other spots, including first base, for the benefit of scouts.

    Although a talented quarterback who passed for 2,700 yards for the football team this past fall, baseball is his first priority.

    “Baseball is my passion,” he said. “I’ve just loved the game since I started playing T-ball at 4 at Gonzalez Park.”

    This kid could be a major find. It seems He’s got a good head on his shoulders to go with the skills:

    Smith’s reputation extends beyond his teammates. His talent has made him an icon to baseball-playing youngsters in the Compton community.

    “Chris is bringing baseball back to the inner-city because the kids at the parks are looking up to him,” Pickens said. “Some of these kids don’t know who Kobe Bryant or LeBron James is, but they know who Chris is.”

    “It makes me feel good being a peer to these kids,” Smith said. “It’s an honor and a big responsibility to be a role model.”
    Consider me very intrigued. VERY intrigued.

    Money, luckily, isn't a problem. He's a total signability guy and will want a lot of $. But as long as they can lure him from the Rice factory, he'll be a great pick up.

    So all in all, a very interesting draft for the Yanks with a lot of high-ceiling, long term projects, one lefty project/reach, and one immediate contributer. That's exactly the type of draft the Yanks should be doing, even if you might disagree on the people chosen.

    And of course, the Yankees now have a TON of high ceiling RHP in the system. Like, so many they need to start making trades real quick like...

    - Good Sized Athletes, all above 6 feet, Rodriguez is the only one not pushing 200 pounds, but he's still young and should grow into his frame.

    I think he could be a Pedroia-type player, except a Lefty.

    Not bad, not the most exciting use of a First Rounder though.

    Damn it:

    Patrick (Chicago): How big of a steal is Tim Melville in the 4th round? Assuming he signs.

    Keith Law: (2:09 PM ET ) I'm hearing that he's going to sign. If they restore his 2007 delivery, that could end up the best pick in the draft in terms of value for the pick number.
