AQ Conference Follow List: 2012 MLB Draft Third Basemen

Shaffer is the pretty easy pick at the top, but I could see 10 different teams having 10 different players ranked in the second spot on their preference lists. I like Reynolds over Piscotty and St. Mary’s Patrick Wisdom (not listed below), but could see the argument for any from that group. Other names off the beaten path who deserve consideration near the top include Southwest Missouri State SR Trenton Moses (productive, strong, big raw power, questionable defender), TCU rJR Jantzen Witte (plus glove, emerging bat, recently returned from injury), Manhattanville JR Dan Fiorito (similar strengths to Moses, but better defensive tools), and the Louisburg JC duo of Zach Houchins and Steve Nyisztor, covered briefly here earlier in the season. Also discussed was Central Arizona JC FR Fernando Perez, another juco player who has played well enough to warrant top five round consideration. All told, this isn’t a particularly inspiring class (if you said that no current college third baseman will ever play consistent innings at the position in the big leagues, I couldn’t really argue), but there are enough interesting names to keep us engaged over the next few weeks.
