Scouting the 2015 Draft: Nick Plummer
Nick Plummer is probably the top true 5 tool player in the 2015 draft, at least at this point. He's a high schooler from Michigan. He's a bit on the short side at 5'11", 200 lbs with a strong, muscular physique. He B-L, T-L and plays CF. He is fast with a home-to-first time of 4.19 secs. Like more and more HS hitters, he appears to have an advanced approach to hitting. He made a name for himself this summer by leading off the Area Code Game with a HR to RF. Some scouts question about whether he will stick in CF. BA has him ranked #11 in its early draft ranking. Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs has him at #16 and calls him a "quick twitch athlete with plus bat speed, above average raw power and lots of hard contact."
