The stage a draft prospect gets the opportunity to perform on can often have a lot to do with how highly he ends up being valued by scouts. It can help a player, as it did for Sean Manaea a couple years back, who had his Cape Cod League performance to fall back on preceding an up and down final spring at Indiana State. Had he not had that platform in front of dozens of scouts on a daily basis, things may have worked out very differently for him. Conversely, there are pitchers like Missouri’s Brett Graves, who did not have that Cape or Team USA platform to perform on and has had to work just a bit harder this spring to prove himself as an elite draft prospect.
