2013 Orioles CB round draft pick A - Josh Hart - CF - Parkview HS - Georgia

Recommended Posts

Things I've been reading on this kid say weak arm, no power, middling range and instincts in the field. Not exactly a wow factor happening. I haz a little bit of a draft sadz, especially with Austin Wilson sitting there.

Any insights on his eye at the plate and/or his D?

No. The guys on MLB network were raving about his d though.

"Can flat out play center field"

Interesting spread of opinions on that one ;)

Hart has more power and athletic upside than the Ruettiger/Hudson/Angle line of recent picks. Also seems to have more power and polish than Xavier Avery at this stage. I would have been more excited by Austin Wilson or Jon Denney but this seems like a good pick.

Baseball America's writeup on him says he has 60 speed (above average but not plus/plus) with 4.0 times to 1B. Sounds fast but doesn't sound blazing fast.

Best thing I read about him is that he has good bat speed and consistently barrels up the ball, so maybe this kid is just a good all around player but not lights out in any one category.
