Few players improved their draft status over the past year, particularly since the beginning of last summer, than Skipworth. He put on a show both at the plate and behind it as he traveled from one top prospect showcase to the next, showing his impressive power potential from the left-side of the plate to go along with improving receiving skills. His overall athleticism and tall frame has elicited some unfair comparisons to Joe Mauer. He has a strong throwing arm and soft hands with natural leadership skills that allows him to handle a pitching staff very well. He has nice and easy swing that produces power to all fields, as his summer was highlighted by blasting a two-run home run to the opposite field against Quinton Miller. He has committed to play for Arizona State, and has a chance to be among the top three to five overall picks if he continues to improve as rapidly as he has.
