Tobias is another talented infielder who looks like the complete package.
He’s headed to Florida, but don’t be surprised if teams are wowed by his tools and his “lead-off guy” potential and make him a mid-round pick.
Then all they have to do is sway him away from the prohibitive favorite to win this year’s CWS title.
Tobias is a switch-hitter, like so many of these high school infielders coming out. He has a very unorthodox swing that features some early movement that you have to think will affect his hitting at the pro-level. Fortunately, it hasn’t hurt him much in high school.
Like Shawon Dunston Jr., he has excellent speed. That should serve him well provided he doesn’t ever grow into his average raw power.
He is a UF commit, so you know if he forgoes pro ball for a chance to play with the Gators, he’ll most likely get some expert coaching and get his swing straightened out. He could emerge as one of the top infielder prospects for the 2014 draft.
