- Lean and lanky college type right now
- UNC commit
- switch hitter, better bat speed from left side
- above-average speed
- ball jumps off his bat
- may move to third base
Narron is a switch-hitting infielder – left handed he has better bat speed while right handed more lift and power. The ball jumps off of his bat and he shows good power potential. He squares up on the ball well from both sides of the plate.
Narron has had national exposure at a myriad of events, so he’s been scouted a lot, and almost all of the scouts agree that he has a tremendous potential in every facet of the game. Some scouts believe that his best projected position will end up being at third base as he matures.

Info from MLB.com draft tracker:
Narron, the son of former Major League catcher and manager Jerry Narron, was named an AFLAC All-America selection in 2009 and participated in the East Coast Showcase as a sophomore and junior. He led his team to a 2007 North Carolina 3A state title. Narron committed to play at the University of North Carolina.
I really, really like this pick. Andy Seiler believes Narron is unsignable, but others say he’s looking for a high six figure signing bonus, but we need to sign him. If we do sign him, 2 of our top 5 prospects would be shortstops, Machado and Narron. That would be some draft by the Orioles regardless of the other picks.
