Coming into the 2021 Class, Jud Fabian has been front and center since stepping foot on campus at Florida, and he has proven he has not only the talent to perform at the games highest level, but also makeup that will help him exponentially throughout the process as he heads into his draft year touted unquestionably as the best Position Player in the class.
An athletic OF from Trinity Catholic High School in Ocala, Florida. Fabian enrolled early into Florida University and pass up his senior year as well as the 2019 MLB Draft in the process. Here we are 3 years later, and Jud sees himself right near the top of the Class. A potential 5-tool prospect that does so many things well on the field.
MLB Draft Scouting Report
OF | Jud Fabian | Age: 20.8
**Age is at time of the 2021 July Draft**
If the Scouting Report above is a little to tough to read, click the download above for a much clearer version. Bigger Text and Zoom Capabilities.
Fabian has played primarily CF throughout his career at Florida, with the exception of a few games in LF during his time on the Cape. Jud can roam CF relatively well, as you can see by the 55 grade Defense above. However, its entirely possible that he ends up in LF due to a superior fielding CF on the roster, wherever that may be. If he shifts to LF, He has a chance to end up as a Plus defender at the position.
Jud has some pop to work with at the plate. He has shown the ability to hit some absolute missiles out of the park like the one below.
This one got out extremely quick, under 3.5 seconds.
There is no doubt power to tap into at the next level as he continues his development and sees his body continue to develop alongside it.
Locked into the Top 5 picks, with Top 3 looking like an even more likely scenario.
The Pirates at 1, Rangers at 2, and Tigers at 3 all have reasons to seriously consider Jud in their positions of the draft and add a high profile OF to their system.
