MLB 2020 Draft Prospects

MLB 2020 Draft Eligible Stephen Hill, Morehead State:
Here we are taking a deeper look at one of the top third base power hitters coming out of the OVC in the 2020 MLB Draft class.

Stephen Hill is a third baseman who is red-shirt junior at Morehead State University standing at 6'1 and 200 lbs. Hill has been at junior college level and the NCAA Division 1 level and continues to consistently hit above .300 with really good power numbers for scouts to look at in the MLB Draft. 

Hill spent his freshman season in 2017 at South Suburban CC, where he played in 49 games, hitting .316 with 14 doubles, 10 homers, 40 RBI's, with a .573 slugging % and a .438 on base %. That season was what led Hill, to transfer to Morehead State as he was red-shirted the following year.

At Morehead State in 2019 as a red-shirt sophomore, Hill started in 55 out of the 58 games he played in that year, hitting .327 with 10 doubles, 6 homers, 37 RBI's, with a .462 slugging % and a .428 on base %. 

In the summer 2019 after a great year at Morehead State, Hill played for the Alexandria Aces in the Ripken Summer Collegiate League where he continued to impress MLB Scouts. With the Aces, Hill was selected as All-Star in the League as he hit .309 in 28 games with 3 doubles, 4 homers, 21 RBI's, with a .468 slugging % and a .454 on base %. 

This year as a red-shirt junior at Morehead State with only getting 15 games in due to the COVID-19 pandemic which cancelled the season, Hill continued to impress as he was hitting .294 with the most hits on the team, along with leading the team in doubles and walks. Hill had 5 doubles, 2 homers, 11 RBI's, with a .510 slugging % and a .448 on base % before the season was cancelled.

Hill's numbers just continue to be really good at every level he has played at in his collegiate career. If Hill, doesn't get his name called in this years MLB Draft, look for him to be on their radar in drafts to come as he continues to produce as a power hitting third baseman in the college level year in and year out.
