2016 MLB Draft Follow Lists – MAAC

One of my great regrets in doing conference lists rather than team profiles is the unfortunate inevitability of the prospects outside a conference’s top few names getting short shrift. With team profiles, there’s more time and space to get into some of the lesser prospects that are still fun to discuss as potential late-round sleepers. So without any huge names that I can see in this year’s class of MAAC draft prospects, let’s take a look at some of the prospects who would have gotten profiled in a team-by-team look instead.

Jose Carrera is listed at 5-6, 145 pounds, but nobody who has seen him believes he’s really that big. He struggled with the stick last season (.190 BA), but found other ways to contribute offensively: his 14 BB/9 K ratio led to a .358 OBP, his lack of size didn’t get in the way of some surprising pop showing through (168 ISO), and his above-average speed and smart base running was evident in his 15/16 success rate stealing bags. Carrera is one of my favorite college players already. I’m all about him as a 2017 senior-sign. For those of you who don’t want to wait another year for a senior-sign to love, there’s Lou Iannotti of Quinnipiac. Iannotti has great size (6-3, 200), above-average speed, a strong arm, and really impressive defensive instincts. It’s not the usual package one would expect out of a potential late-round senior-sign MAAC catching prospect, but Iannotti makes it work.

Kyano Cummings is a rarity as a lefty with a legit plus splitter. How rare is a lefthander who throws a split? Quick research revealed only five big league lefties even attempted the pitch last year: Jeremy Affeldt, Matt Reynolds, Ken Roberts, Andrew Faulkner, and Manny Parra. Fellow lefthanders Anthony Ciavarella (curve) and Frank Trimarco (change) don’t throw splitters (to my knowledge), but both have an out pitch of their own that they can rely on to miss bats.

Meanwhile, at the top of their respective lists sit Jake Lumley and Iannick Remillard from Canisius. Lumley is a reliable glove with above-average speed and a sound approach at the plate. Remillard has always been able to get swings and misses from his three-pitch mix headlined by a heater up to 93 MPH. Below them are real draft prospects that I can’t help but like such as Christ Conley (athletic catcher who can hit), Shaine Hughes (promising bat that could rise this spring with more exposure), Christian Santisteban (an all-caps FAVORITE as a hitter), Alex Vargas (undersized righthander with a really quick arm), Thomas Jankins (a crafty righty who can throw any one of his top four pitches in any count), and Bryan Goossens (intriguing senior-sign reliever option up to 94).
