Nice writeup.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Haven't heard much on him, is he a candidate for 4 overall? If so, I think I'd rather have Stewart or Manaea... Second round... on the other hand...

Jim Callis wrote about him in his latest Ask BA, answering "Who has the best fallback plan in this draft"

"The 2013 draftee with the best fallback plan is New Castle (Ind.) High’s Trey Ball, who likely will be a top-10-overall choice as a lefthanded pitcher.

Coming into the year, scouts were split on whether Ball had a brighter future as an outfielder or a pitcher. He has put that debate to rest by showing a 91-94 mph fastball and an improved curveball this spring, but he also would merit a second- or third-round selecton as a position player. He projects as an athletic right fielder with above-average lefthanded power potential and arm strength."
