His power is pretty limited to the pull side from both sides of the plate. Makes sense, he isn't a big guy, so turning his hips is going to allow him to get the most power he can.
In 2010 he was more powerful as a lefty. In 2011 he showed more power as a righty. Right now, I wouldn't worry too much about his power. We don't know much about how Pensacola plays just yet, just rumors from players who have been there (where they say its very tough to hit it out to right field). In Louisville he is coming off of a hand injury, so take that with a bit of a grain of salt as well.
