It is a great year for infielders in Southern California, and Noonan is one of the many that could be taken in the first several rounds of the draft. Noonan's best tool is his left-handed bat. He shows a very good eye at the plate, makes good contact and has good power potential. He is a proven run producer and has always had a knack for the big hit. More power is expected to come as Noonan continues to mature. Defensively he may outgrow the shortstop position, as his range currently is right about average, but he is solid and rarely beats himself. If he moves to second base, he profiles in a similar fashion to Phillies second baseman Chase Utley. Noonan played on the Aflac All-American team last summer and has committed to play for Clemson.
