Stanford bats show off 

February, 20, 2012

The first weekend of D-1 college baseball is in the books and several top prospects saw action in front of dozens of scouts. Keith Law scouted Stanford right-hander Mark Appel Friday night, but it was Appel's bat-wielding teammates who stole the show this weekend.

Third baseman Stephen Piscotty doubled and homered twice in the three-game set versus Vanderbilt, prompting one scouting supervisor to suggest the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Piscotty could hit his way into the top 10 of the draft if he continues to show corner-type power. He's a sound hitter who is learning to use his lower half better and already uses the whole field.
