His tools are phenomenal but people are not sure about his bat. For such a high-level prospect swinging aluminum against college pitching, he struck out a lot. I don't know if he has poor plate discipline or just swings and misses. Nonetheless, it's a concern; the drafting team doesn't know if it's getting the next Griffey or the next Reggie Taylor.
