2013 HS Scouting Reports: 76-100

See Also: 50 Players Who Just Missed The 2013 HS Top 100 76. Eugene Vazquez, of, Timbercreek HS, Orlando   Vazquez has a lean, athletic frame at 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds. While he has average speed and arm strength, he’s limited to left field or first base because he bats and throws lefthanded. Likely limited to a corner, he will have to rake, and he shows advanced bat speed and the ball jumps off his bat. However, he’s more of a handsy line-drive hitter than a slugger. Vazquez plays for FTB Mizuno in the summer and is committed to Central Florida. 77. Kevin Franklin, 3b, Gahr HS, Cerritos, Calif. ( @RealKJ44 ) Franklin immediately stands out for his burly physique. At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, Franklin has a thick lower half and a barrel chest. There aren’t many major league third basemen with his build. He has above-average arm strength, but his lack of lateral quickness and occasionally stiff hands in the field may trigger an eventual move to first base. That’s OK because Franklin’s provocative power should allow him to move anywhere on the diamond. As you might imagine, his physique lends to a strength-oriented swing and Franklin shows towering raw power at times.
