College Draft Profile: Stuart Turner

 

Stuart Turner, C, University of Mississippi

Class: Junior; Height: 6-2; Weight: 220; B/T: R/R

Updated: 06/03/13

After spending two years at LSU-Eunice, a junior college, Turner transferred to Ole Miss and took over the starting catching duties. And through the Rebels’ first 59 games, he owns a .374/.444/.518 line, showing a little bit of pop (.144 Isolated Power, 15 doubles, one triple, and five homeruns), a decent eye (28-to-37 walk-to-strikeout ratio), and a solid arm behind the plate.

Projection: Turner’s a few rungs behind Georgia Tech’s Zane Evans and Cal’s Andrew Knapp, but he does have the ability to develop into a capable backup. But he’s likely not going to become a starter. his power is below-average and he doesn’t own a true standout tool.

Ceiling: 1.0- win player

Likelihood of Reaching His Ceiling: Moderate

Drafted: Third Round
