Supposedly a pretty strong bat draft but weak on pitching, the top 6-7 guys currently talked at the top are all hitters.

The most talked about hitters are 1b andrew vaughn and catcher adley rutschman.

Vaughn is a right handed 1b only which isn't the greatest profile, not a great athlete and rather short for a 1b but he is an absolute beast at the plate hitting both for power and average. His bat is very advanced and he likely will only take a little more than a year to be ready for the majors. He raked all 3 years and this year is no difference at 414/580/793

Rutschman is probably the best prospect of the draft. He has almost raked as much as vaughn (not quite but not that far behind) and this year so far he only got better at 456/619/895. He is probably the second best bat of the draft behind vaughn but he is also a competent catcher. There is not a lot of doubt he won't go 1-1 if he keeps this up and stays healthy.

The other two guys are hs shortstops cj Abrams and bobby witt jr. Witt has plus power albeit some have concerns about the hit tool while Abrams has a lot of speed but not no pop either.

Which other guys do you see at the top?
