It has been a busy few weeks for Prep Baseball Report and PBR Georgia regarding the Class of 2020 and the approaching 2020 MLB Draft. First, we had the update of the 2020 National Rankings, with Georgia being well-represented, followed by the combined High School, Junior College and College 2020 Draft Board. Extending over the next few weeks, we are going to dive into the 2020 Georgia rankings and give our take on the prospects who possess the top tools in the state. Yesterday, we began by looking at the top-5 left-handed bats in the state. Today, we look at the top-5 right-handed bats in the state's 2020 class.

Top Right-Handed Hitters

John Anderson 2B / 3B / North Gwinnett, GA / 2020

Anderson is simply one of this class’ best hitters. His home on defense is likely second base, but he has the arm strength to fit at third and could end up profiling there in the future if he’s able to bulk up. His innate ability to repeatedly find the barrel makes it impossible to sleep on him as prospect in this 2020 class.

Jordan Walker 3B / RHP / Decatur, GA / 2020

Duke recruit, one of the top draft prospects in the 2020 class, currently ranked No. 1 in Georgia, No. 33 overall. Physical specimen, stands 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, lean, athletic build with proportional strength and plenty of room for continued physical development. Showed up shortly before Team Elite’s second game of the day and proceeded to make his presence known in each of his three at-bats. First, he roped a double to right center field, and followed it with a line-drive single to left field. Then he topped it off with a laser home run, 105-mph off the bat, that cleared the left field wall in a nanosecond. Quick-twitch athlete, generates plus bat speed with little effort; for his size and length, he stays connected. Present power with more projection in the future. 

Parks Harber 3B / The Westminster Schools, GA / 2020

Physically mature 3B committed to UGA.  Harber has battled a hand injury all Spring and is just now bouncing back.  Have seen many quality AB's out of Harbor and appears to see the ball for a long time at the plate with plenty of strength to his controlled right-handed stroke.  Will need to answer body and athleticism question to stick and the hot corner, but the bat is where the most intrigue is placed. 

Harold Coll SS / Georgia Premier, GA / 2020

A recent transplant from Massachusetts, Coll is 5-foot-11, 170-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder. Continues to flash above average defensive skills, throwing 91 mph across the diamond with an easy arm action. The foot work is solid and he moves laterally well. The ability to stay at shortstop is present. The foot speed is 7.05 and will hover around the 7.0 mark as he makes his way through college. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 92. The set up is wide in base, uses a knee to knee approach as the ball enters the hitting zone. The hands are clean and fluid through contact, gap to gap guy at the present time.


Garrett Staton SS / 3B / North Forsyth , GA / 2020

Staton is a very interesting shortstop/third base prospect who poses a strong build at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds. Staton moves well to his left and shows the ability to come and get the baseball, on the move. He has all the measurables as well, posting a 6.81 mark in the 60-yard dash, combined with an 89 mph top velocity across the infield. He has plenty of arm and his feet work well in the dirt. While Staton can get it done on the defensive side of the ball, he has excelled at the plate over the last year, and it was easy to see why. He sets up with hands loaded slightly above his shoulder and gets maximum leverage to put his size and strength to work. He showed well with the ability to stay on pitches on the outer half and drive the baseball. He produces consistent hard contact with feel for the bathead, and has enough thump in his bat to do some damage, as he produced and exit velocity of 92 mph off the barrel. Staton profiles well at the next level and has enough versatility to be used in a variety of capacities early in his career, giving him much value to a team at the next level.
