Deven Marrero MLB Draft Profile

Arizona State College Baseball Deven Marrero 2012 MLB Draft Profile

Deven Marrero, Junior, Shortstop, Arizona State

Arizona State Team Page



Deven Marrero was drafted in the 17th round out of high school and has really boosted his draft stock during his time at Arizona State. The 6-1 shortstop is a defensive stalwart first and foremost. He has a great arm and impressive range. At the next level Marrero is a player who should stay at shortstop and some MLB teams will think about building a program around him. But Marrero is not all about defense. He batted .397 as a freshman and knocked six balls out of the park. As a sophomore his batting average dipped to .315, but he developed more discipline at the plate.


Final Projection:

Marrero’s draft stock has been moving up and down. Some see him as a top five selection, others as a player more in the 20 to 25 range. A lot will depend on the development of his hitting leading up to the 2012 MLB Draft. He is a decent contact hitter and has a nice looking swing, but he needs to find some more power if he really is going to be a top five selection.
