Ke’Bryan Hayes Listed in Baseball America’s Top 10 for GCL Prospects

By Jason Shetler



Ben Badler of Baseball America released his list of the Top 20 Gulf Coast League prospects, and had Ke’Bryan Hayes ranked in the Top 10 at #9. Badler mentioned that this year’s GCL class is the deepest and most talented he’s seen in a long time, so Hayes being in the Top 10 says a lot about his upside. 

Hayes was the Pirates first round supplemental choice in this year’s draft. The 18-year-old third baseman played 44 games for the GCL Pirates where he batted .333 along with an .809 OPS. He was also good on the defensive side, as he posted a .955 fielding percentage, and turned seven double plays. Hayes is likely to begin next year in short season ball for the West Virginia Black Bears.
