Donavan Tate not guaranteed to develop

The other main position player is Donavan Tate. The consensus top prep prospect, he is this year’s toolsy, raw prospect. The thing is, there’s no denying his athleticism, but he’s no guarantee to develop all his tools, notably his power. For every Jason Heyward drafted like this, there’s three or four guys like the Giants’ Wendell Fairley, who starts very slow and will take very long to develop. No one disagrees that Tate is a project at best, and that’s before discussing that his agent is Scott Boras, and no one is really sure that he’ll choose baseball over football. (McCovey Chronicles)
