Drew Ailing, 3B, Clarence HS, NY (2015)

Ailing stands 5-foot-11, 160-pounds with a lean frame. His approach at the plate is balanced with a back load and short toe lift before the swing. Long Path, Bat plane is slightly inclined through the zone with a one handed shoulder finish. His exit velocity was 80 mph off a tee. From the infield he stays behind the ball, funnels it nice to his body and throws from a high-3/4 slot. His arm strength 77 across the diamond and ran a 7.4 60.

At 5-foot-11, 160-pounds there's a ton of room for physical growth. A common concept is bigger, stronger, faster, which rings true in baseball, so with that mindset Ailing could up his exit velocity and arm strength in 3 hard months. He uses solid baseball actions fielding and at 77 mph the arm strength will only get better. His body projection is his greatest tool.
