1. Chris Shaw (1B) ... 6-3, 229 ... L/R ... 23 ... 2015 (1) Boston College

Comments: Hulking slugger with feel for bat and on verge of majors. Has 30+ HR potential by natural strength and plus bat speed. Very fluid swing from left side and has ability to use all fields. Swing can get long and susceptible to K, but trade off for power is more than OK. Improving defender at 1B, though has very slow foot speed....
