With injury behind him, Longhi honing selective... (3.25.15)
Notes from the Field: Devers power display... (5.6.15)

Physical Description: Solid frame, strong core and upper body. Could add more strength as he physically matures.  

Hit: Starts with hands down and brings them up during load. Toe tap for load and timing. Strong feel for hitting and knack for making hard contact. Uses all fields. Swing can get long and has a tendency to come around the ball. Solid-average bat speed, but can struggle with plus velocity up in the zone. Potential average hit tool.  

Power: Ball carries off the bat. Has shown the ability to hit the ball out of the park in batting practice, but over-the-fence power hasnít translated to games yet. Average raw power, with fringe-average-to-average game power potential once he physically matures.  

Arm: Plus arm strength. Plenty of arm for the corner outfield. Hit 93 mph on mound in high school.  

Field: Versatility to play both outfield corners and first base. Solid-average defender with strong instincts, soft hands and solid footwork.  

Run: Not part of his game. Fringe-average runner with good instincts. Aggressive on the basepaths, but knows his limits. Looks to take the extra base when possible.  

Career Notes: 2014 season ended in mid-July due to a torn UCL in his thumb, suffered while sliding. Committed to Louisiana State before signing.  

Summation: Potential second-division regular at the big league level. Average-to-better defensive profile with fringe-average-to-average hit and power potential. Offensive profile fits better in the corner outfield than at first base. Needs repetitions. Young for a 2013 draftee.
