Scouting Report
: Great plate patience and judgment, hits to all fields, tremendous power.  Dead pull swing with a few correctable holes.  Open stance with minimal stride.  Drafted as a catcher. Behind the plate, Still is a great game caller and leader, but is somewhat slow and unathletic. He is below average defensively as a backstop.  Average to below average arm strength with a slow release - inability to hold runners have led to him no longer getting serious reps behind the plate.  He still may have the offensive tools to advance as a first baseman, particularly considering his power.   However, his defensive skills at first base have also been called into question, so he could be a designated hitter long term. Began getting some work in the outfield in the spring of 2010.
