Jarred Kelenic, OF, West HS (Waukesha, WI)

I live in Wisconsin and it is surprising to see a HS prospect listed this high. Was it UK that provided his name in the 2017 draft discussion?

He's really cut down the walks in the Cape so far this summer.

Baker's going to get knocked for being both a 1B and a RH 1B at that, especially since he got hurt, but he was on his way to be a truly elite prospect as a freshman. Madrigal's got alot to like but where's the power? Pompey could be fun if he can play CF.

Yes, he's by far the best position prospect I've seen in 13 years. Odorizzi and Folty are the best pitchers I've seen but at this point, Kelenic is higher than him, IMO.
