PICK ANALYSIS BY JEREMY BOOTH, CEO AND PRESIDENT OF THE NEW BALANCE BASEBALL FUTURE STARS SERIES: Nathan Ochoa Leyva. Nats, third baseman, has some obvious Troy Glaus physical comparisons at the same stage. Has some power. Don’t know if the hit tool is going to be quite as advanced as that, but if he hits enough, he’s got a chance to be an everyday regular. Can definitely play defense and play short for me long term. You’re buying into the future there.
