    AAP: Colson Montgomery

    Tall, lanky lefty power HS SS. May end up at 3B eventually. "Montgomery thought basketball would be his future when he began his high school career, and while he's the leading scorer in Southridge HS (Huntingburg, Ind.) history, he has more upside in baseball. He made continued improvement on the showcase circuit during the summer, finished with a strong performance at the World Wood Bat Association World Championship in October and powered Southridge to its first state 3-A championship this spring. He'll turn 19 five months before the Draft, which hurts him with teams that focus on age, but he's also one of the more physical athletes in the prep position player crop. Montgomery has a good left-handed swing that should allow him to hit for average and power. He's most effective when he uses the entire field rather than trying to pull pitches out of the park, and his approach got more consistent throughout the summer. His frame resembles Corey Seager's at the same stage of their careers and he has the strength and bat speed to develop similar pop. Though he plays shortstop in high school, Montgomery has fringy speed and figures to outgrow the position once he fills out his 6-foot-4 frame. He moves well for his size and should become at least an average defender with a solid arm at the hot corner. If he attends college at Indiana, he'll be eligible for the 2023 Draft."

    AAP: Wes Kath

    Lefty hitting High School 3B - Sox give him extra money to keep him from college. "At the start of the summer showcase circuit, Kath was just another high school bat amongst many throughout the country. After swinging the bat consistently well at a number of events, from the Area Code Games to the World Wood Bat Association World Championship, he emerged as the top position player in Arizona and certainly didn't hurt his stock by absolutely raking during his senior season, earning Gatorade's state high school player of the year honors in the process. Kath became a bit of a sleeper favorite among scouts because of his abilities from the left side of the plate. He showed the ability to impact the baseball repeatedly at a number of events against very good competition. There have been times in the past where he's been more of a defensive hitter, but he attacked the ball more this summer and there's size and strength to hope for more power if he can continue to be aggressive at the plate. While Kath plays shortstop in high school, most see a move to third base at the next level. He has good hands and a plus arm, but he tends to need to set and throw to be accurate and will likely lack the range to play up the middle as he matures. He does have the chance to be an excellent third baseman, with some seeing the Arizona State recruit as a slightly more athletic version of Red Sox prospect Triston Casas, perhaps with a bit less power."

    Young OF/P from the minors of Japan, by way of Cuba, Two-way threat, that has All-Star potential. Sox will probably keep him as a hitter.

    Incredible debut the same season he was drafted. Easy 100 mph pitching power, but arm strain worries.

    He's certainly looking Trout-esque so far this season.
