1. Kaleb Cowart (3B)

Drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft for a $2.3 million dollar signing bonus, Kaleb Cowart had a breakout year in 2012. Across Low-A and High-A, he had a 79% contact rate to go along with an excellent walk rate of 15%. He also hit for power with 16 home runs as well as stealing 14 bases. While he continued to hit in the first couple of weeks of the Arizona Fall League, he tired towards the end of October and wound up hitting a disappointing .200.

Cowart demonstrates nice bat speed from both sides of the plate, although he looks more comfortable from his natural right side. When I saw him at the Arizona Fall League, he did not handle off-speed pitches well from the left side. The swing is compact and while his current raw power is a 50 on the 20-80 scouting scale, I could see this improving as he matures.

I am surprised at the 14 stolen bases as I clocked him at 4.32 down to first base from the right side, which is average to slightly below average raw speed. Therefore the stolen bases were based more on skill than raw talent which usually means that the results are not sustainable.

Fantasy Impact: Cowart has the ceiling of a first division third baseman. If he reaches his full potential, you are looking at 20-25 home runs and a .280 batting average with a handful of stolen bases. Since Cowart is not yet a household name, you should be able to get him late in a Dynasty Draft.
