Scouting the 2017 Draft: Evan White; Luis Campusano

Evan White, 1B, College(Kentucky).  B-R, T-L.  6'3", 205 lbs.

2017:  .385/.460/.661, 22 2B, 3B, 8 HR, 18 BB, 28 K, 174 AB.
2016:  .376/.419/.535, 15 2B, 3 3B, 5 HR, 14 BB, 42 K, 226 AB.
2015:  .318/.369/.410, 12 2B, 3B, 2 HR, 15 BB, 33 K, 217 AB.

White is a 3 year starter for Kentucky.  Very athletic.  Recorded a 4.2 time to 1B from the RH batters box.  Everybody agrees he could play OF, either corner or even CF.  Has been a 1B in college.  Unusual B-R, T-L profile is a red flag for some scouts.  Despite his size is more of a hitter for average with gap power due to a level swing.  Still has room to fill out and more power should come.  Has moved up into the late first round in many mock drafts.  Would the Giants be interested?


Luis Campusano, C, HS.  B-R, T-R.  6'0" 190 lbs.

HS catching prospect from Augusta, Georgia.  In an interview posted online, he comes out as a huge Giants fan, he says because of the Augusta Greenjackets, but the Giants are rumored to be in on him in a big way.  In videos, he looks bigger than his listed size.  Physically looks like a Molina which was mentioned in his PG profile.  Plus tools are power and arm strength.  The swing can get long.  Most analysts rank him as a second round prospect and that is where I would put him too.  Giants have been known to reach in these situations if they really like a player and aren't sure he'll be there in the projected round.
