2018 MLB Draft Scouting Report With VIDEO: Noah Naylor 29th Overall, Cleveland Indians

June 4, 2018

Noah Naylor was taken 29th overall by the Cleveland Indians, and is a proud alum of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series and Program 15.

Naylor participated in the International Week event in Sugar Land, Texas, and Program 15 VP of scouting Butch Baccala provided the following report on Naylor.

“Noah Naylor is, by far, one of the top three players I’ve ever scouted as far as tools to play the game.  He’s a plus catcher, plus throwing arm, plus runner, plus bat, plus power.  There’s nothing that Noah Naylor can’t do on a baseball field, and I think what’s been the most surprising — not for me, but for baseball — is his level of bat. He comes from a family where his brother (Josh) was an absolute masher, and I don’t know anybody who would think he’d be anything less than that.  He’s a guy that can carry an impact bat at a premium position, which makes him a premium type draft.”
