2023 MLB DRAFT: Cooper Pratt, 3B, Magnolia Heights (MS)

Cooper Pratt has a very strong commitment to Ole Miss, but will surely go at a point in the Draft where the Mississippi native will inarguably will have a huge decision to make, with some mocks having him being off the board as soon as late in the first round. Still with some projection left in his frame and an advanced bat, he would be a Top 10 prospect in virtually any big-league organization he joined.

FSS Event History: Pratt’s history at FSS events is longer than it may initially seem, as he first attended a BPA Scout Day back in 2019. You likely know him best for what he did in 2022, in which he went to Regional Combine, earned an invite to the National Combine, and then was arguably the breakout star of the Main Event, where he dazzled scouts with a home run at Dunkin’ Donuts Park in Hartford.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 38

Joe Doyle on Cooper Pratt:

Pratt is a strong, long-bodied infielder with big tools and a track record of performing against premium pitching. Pratt has a proven resume against velocity and has a willingness to use the whole field, spraying line drives to all-fields, showcasing over-the-fence juice to his pullside. Pratt is a fringe-average runner and likely a fringe-average athlete, though with his frame, there’s a chance he could hold his speed or even get a touch quicker with added muscle and training. He’s got a huge arm, comfortable plus across the diamond. Most evaluators believe he’s destined for third base or maybe even right field. The bat is what you’re buying here, and Pratt should develop into significant impact at the plate.
