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.
