Follow the Prospects: Brady House, SS
« Topic Start: July 11, 2021, 08:23:39 PM »
Brady House
Winder-Barrow HS, Winder, Ga.SS
Notes:
Ht: 6-3 | Wt: 215 | B-T: R-R
Commit/Drafted: Tennessee
Age At Draft: 18.1
RapScore: 49

BA Grade: 60 | Risk: Extreme
Hit: 55 | Power: 70 | Run: 50 | Field: 55 | Arm: 70

House entered the 2021 draft cycle as the top high school prospect in the class thanks to an impressive combination of physicality, explosive tools and a lengthy track record of hitting at a high level. Listed at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, House stands out for his impressive bat speed and natural strength, with many scouts believing he will grow into 70-grade raw power at physical maturity. He pairs that power with an advanced offensive approach that includes solid pitch recognition and the ability to turn around velocity and recognize spin out of the hand. House wasn’t quite as explosive as scouts wanted him to be offensively over the showcase circuit, showing more swing and miss than desired, but he more than flashed his upside and skill set. While he does have a tendency to swing through pitches, when he makes contact it’s frequently hard with standout exit velocities. Outside of his power, House’s arm strength is likely his loudest tool, with a true howitzer of an arm that has been up into the mid 90s when he’s gotten on the mound and would easily play at third base or right field if necessary. A shortstop now, House has proven to be a better defender than scouts anticipated considering his size. Most expect that he’ll move off the position in the long run, but he has solid hands and reactions, as well as an impressive internal clock, body control and athleticism that allow him to make difficult plays. He does have the tools to be a solid defender at shortstop or a very good one at third base, but there’s no reason to move him off short until a superior defender forces him off or until his lack of elite quick-twitch mobility becomes prohibitive. House projects as an average runner in the future, though he has turned in above-average run times. The Tennessee commit seems like a safe top-10 pick and has some of the loudest offensive upside in the class.

I think they were surprised  at how quickly the Mets made their pick
The pick was in for a while--not sure why there was a delay announcing it.

Does he stay at SS, as a replacement for Trea? There have been big shortstops, like that guy for the Browns-Orioles who had a long consecutive game streak.

Eh, he's really not that similar. Arenado had a quick bat and a feel for contact

Sign him quickly and send him to Fredericksburg or Wilmington.

Does anyone here trust our player development staff with a hitter who isn’t a phenom like Soto or a polished college masher like Rendon?

Not in today's game. First off, it would be amazing for him to be ready by 2023.

Also, he's not that athletic. He's going to get bigger as he gets stronger.

Really wanted Watson there. At that point, House was my 2nd favorite. I like his selection, just a little disappointed we passed on Watson.

Definitely a 3b in the long run. I like the fact that he just turned 18, and isn't one of the kids pushing 19 as a high school senior. The power is real, and hes a good athlete for the size. Hopefully he lives up to the hype. We needed impact bats, badly.

not the bat, the D, is what he said he patterns himself after.  Odd for a SS

By the time House is ready to be a big leaguer, Kieboom will either be an established vet or long gone

House kinda looks like Arenado. I'd be cool with that. O'Dowd comp'd him to Matt Chapman. That'd be just fine, too.
