Baseball America: Preseason All American Teams

Link

Jacoby Jones - 2B - 1st Team

JACOBY JONES, LOUISIANA STATE: The consensus among scouts is that Jones is college baseball's best athlete, but they have concerns about his hitting ability following his .253/.308/.363 sophomore season. He showed off his tremendous bat speed and strength by winning the Cape Cod League home run derby last summer. A righthanded hitter, he hurts himself at the plate with an all-or-nothing approach and a tendency to press when he struggles. His plus speed makes him an asset on the bases, while he has the range, soft hands and solid arm to handle second base or center field. His 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame likely will fit better in center when he gets to pro ball.

"He's a pretty good athlete but you're looking at something like a Drew Stubbs where you're not sure how much he'll ever hit," a second AL scouting director said. "There were times in the summer on the Cape where he looked like he turned the corner as a hitter. This is a big year for him. He can run, he can throw and he has power. His upside is similar to Brett Jackson from the right side of the plate."

Ryan Eades - P - 2nd Team

Ty Ross - C - 3rd Team

No Katz, Rhymes, or Nola.

I surprised Rhymes isn't on there based on batting average alone.

Baseball America is notorious for not giving a single frick about college stats or actual performance.

re: Baseball America: Preseason All American Teams
Yea I'm a little surprised myself. Not sure how you leave the best hitter in the country off this list. This is the first list I've seen w/o Rhymes.

Well, if it was about pro prospects though, I would think Nola would be an AA.

So what the hell is BA basing this off of if it is not actual performance or pro prospects?

The way I look at it is this: It's BA, so don't think too hard about trying to figure it out.

re: Baseball America: Preseason All American Teams
No reason too, I know why Rhymes was omitted from the list. They still could have put him at DH.

He had a pretty damn good offensive year for a catcher. Vanderbilt & South Carolina had their catchers named to various All-American teams too, and they were much worse at hitting than Ross was.

If you read about how they determine their preseason AA team in the link, it's determined by scouting directors. They three LSU players listed are all highly thought of by scouts. Their end of the season AA team is performance based.
