College Draft Profile: Conrad Gregor

 

Conrad Gregor, 1B/OF, Vanderbilt

Class: Junior; Height: 6-3; Weight: 215; B/T: L/R

Updated: 06/04/13

A 2013 Louisville Slugger Preseason All-American, Gregor has seen his offensive production decline for two straight seasons. After hitting .353/.456/.471 as a true freshman in 211, the lefty-swinging first baseman hit .328/.439/.463 the following year and than .306/.437/.413 this season. According to CollegeSplits.com, his park and schedule adjusted Weighted On Base Average, or wOBA, is a vanilla .391.

Projection: Gregor spent the year playing first base where his below-average power becomes an even more damning skill. What he does do, however, is walk — a lot. So far this season, he’s sporting a BB-rate of 18.8%. He does have experience in the outfield and above-average speed (20 stolen bases in 23 attempts), so that increases his value. And his bat plays far better in center. Teams could do a lot worse late in the draft by taking Gregor and turning him into a decent org guy.

Ceiling: 0.5- to 1.0-win player

Likelihood of Reaching His Ceiling: Low to Moderate

Drafted: Late Round
