Will CWS finally be the team to unlock his prodigious power potential?

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Mississippi State v Vanderbilt Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

#99 Sr. 3B Jayson “Gonzo” Gonzalez

2021 Stats: .280/.391/.497 with 9 2B, 3 3B, 9 HR, 41 RBI, and 2-3 Stolen Bases.

Though Gonzo batted in the 9 hole for most of his senior season, he was a key component in the offense, and came up big multiple times in the postseason. He had to fight for playing time his entire Vanderbilt career, and even though he was not on the team in 2020, fought even harder to be an important part of the 2021 squad. He’s got crazy power potential, so you have to think a team will select him at some point on Day 3.

Range: Rounds 11-20.

MLB.com Top 250 Ranking: N/A

Prediction: Chosen on Day 3. He will sign with the team that drafts him.

Chance He Signs With The Team Who Drafts Him: 99.99%.
