2023 MLB Draft: Myles Naylor, SS — St. Joan of Arc (Canada)

If the name sounds familiar…well, it should. The brother of current Cleveland Guardians teammates Josh and Bo Naylor — the latter of which an FSS alum who was one of the stars of the inaugural 2017 International Week event — Myles Naylor is a shortstop who has an athletic build like his brothers. A Texas Tech commit, he stands out in the middle of the infield.

FSS Event History: Naylor attended an FSS Combine in Mississauga back in 2017, where he obviously had plenty of development to do at the time given his age. But, even then, he was described as an advanced hitter with smooth footwork and an easy arm action, which are traits that can still be seen in his gam etoday.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 61

Joe Doyle on Naylor:

The next Naylor in a long line of big league Naylors (Josh, Bo), Myles is cut from a similar cloth with big bat speed and impact potential at the plate. He’s largely pull-side focused right now, but Naylor has a mature approach to his game that should allow the hit tool to buoy as he matures into more competitive ball. Defensively, Naylor may move off the shortstop position to second or third base where his fringy throwing arm and fringy speed play better.
