Icon SMIA switch-hitter, Lindor has an all-around game that can impact the game in a variety of ways.While the depth of the 2011 draft class remains with the college pitching and the top two picks may remain UCLA right-hander Gerrit Cole and Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon, the top prep players in the class are in the conversation for selection in the top five. The buzz is that the Pittsburgh Pirates are considering Kansas high school centerfielder Bubba Starling at No. 1 overall, and both Dylan Bundy, a right-hander from Owasso (Okla.) High School, and Monteverde (Fla.) Academy shortstop Francisco Lindor are being strongly considered by clubs drafting in the top 5, including Seattle at No. 2.
