MLB Mock Draft

2024 MLB Mock Draft

Welcome to 2024 MLB Mock Draft! We are a little over a week away from the draft starting on July 14, so we are going to walk through a a 1st round mock. Let’s dive in.


1. Cleveland GuardiansJJ Wetherholt, MIF, West Virginia


At the number one overall pick, a lot of the debate has been between Condon and Bazzana. The allure on those two is understandable. Condon has put together a historic college season, while Bazzana has some of the best barrel skills and took a huge step forward in the power department. But in this scenario the Guardians select JJ Wetherholt. Why?

The Guardians know how to be creative. Due to bonus pools, the MLB draft is not straight best player available at one every year. Teams are able to use their bonus pool however they see fit, and if they can get a player they really like “underslot” at first overall, they can use those “savings” to get a talented player later in the draft. That feels like something the Guardians will want to do.

The Guardians have also shown an ability to not get hyper fixated on recency bias. They have a preference for evaluating hitters in the summer when they are using wood, and also factor in past seasons. Wetherholt came into the season as the number one draft prospect in the sport. This was due to an unbelievable Sophomore season where he showcased plus power & speed with elite bat to ball skills. He also performed extremely well with Team USA in the Summer. He dealt with a hamstring injury on and off this season, which led to some inconsistencies, but the Guardians are really good at evaluating the whole prospect, not just the 2024 season. Similar to when they took Chase DeLauter 16th overall after an injury-riddled Junior season, don’t be surprised if the Guardians go with Wetherholt.


2. Cincinnati RedsCharlie Condon, OF, Georgia


Charlie Condon had a historic 2024 season. The 2024 Golden Spikes award winner was an automatic home run for stretches of time this season. He ended the season hitting .433 with 37 home runs in 60 games. Just unbelievable stats.

I dove into Charlie Condon the prospect, here. His story from Walk-on to potential first-overall pick is one for the movies. He took the SEC by storm last year and built off his National Freshman of the Year campaign with an even better one in 2024. It was truly a spectacle to watch each weekend. As for Condon the pro, the Reds would be fired up to get Condon at number two. He is positionally limited, but the bat has the potential to play anywhere. Condon has played some third, and even some CF, but he is most likely going to stick in the OF somewhere. At the end of the day, he is not going to be valued for his glove. His bat and specifically his power will carry him to the MLB. The bat is advanced and ready right now, and the Reds could accelerate him through the minors and I don’t think Condon would struggle. The Reds are close to being good and Condon will be a big part of that success.


3. Colorado RockiesJac Caglianone, 1B/LHP, Florida


A match made in heaven. Caglianone is one of college’s most prolific power hitters over the last two seasons. He became Florida’s all-time home run leader with 75, while basically only playing full-time for two years. This season, he showed major advancements in his hit tool taking his average from .323 to .419 and his strikeouts from 58 to 26. The approach still needs some work, but if the advancements in the hit tool are legit with his already double-plus power, the league will be put on notice. Combine that with playing home games in Colorado, and you have the perfect recipe for success.

At the next level, Cags will most likely not be a pitcher. I am sure the Rockies (or whoever drafts him) will give him the opportunity, but the quality of stuff is just not good enough to take him away from full-time hitting. He has unbelievable athleticism, and I am curious if OF could be in his future once he chooses to hit full-time. Cags in Colorado just feels right.


4. Oakland AthleticsTravis Bazzana, 2B, Oregon State


Oakland proved me wrong last year when they took Jacob Wilson with their sixth overall pick. Wilson does not hit the ball hard at all and felt like a reach at that slot. Well, all Wilson has done since that day is RAKE. Bazzana is a better version of Wilson. He showcases bat-to-ball and barrel skills that are on par with him but flashes much better power. On the season he had an average 96.2 mph exit velocity, which translated to a huge increase in power. Coming into the season he had 17 career home runs, this season alone he hit 28. Bazzana is the best all-around hitter in the class, and fits the hit-over-power mold the A’s prefer. The combination of bat-to-ball skills (84.5% contact rate), and elite exit velocity numbers, makes Bazzana a special prospect.


5. Chicago White SoxHagen Smith, LHP, Arkansas


Hagen Smith is the one player at the top of the draft that I really feel like fit matters. The White Sox have had success with hard-throwing, erratic lefties, see: Garrett Crochet. I wrote about his similarities to former top prospect Asa Lacy, here. Smith’s quality of stuff is not the question, it is whether he will throw it for enough strikes. He lit college baseball on fire this season, striking out 161 hitters in 84 IP. The Pinnacle of his season was 6 IP shutout against Oregon State with 17 strikeouts. Complete dominance. If Smith can consistently throw enough strikes, the mid to upper 90s FB and double plus SL will dominate hitters at all levels. But the main question is, will he throw enough strikes? Time will tell, and the White Sox will have to really develop him in this scenario.


6. Kansas City RoyalsBryce Rainer, SS, Harvard-Westlake HS (CA)


Bryce Rainer seems to be a solid fit for what the Kansas City Royals prefer. A group that is not afraid to take high school talent that has the chance to stick up the middle, the Royals love hitters with a contact-first approach and projectability to add power. Rainer has showcased the ability to make consistent loud contact with both metal and wood, and standing at 6 foot 3 195 lbs, it is easy to dream on the frame.

Rainer has an impressive operation at the plate with a bat-to-ball, oppo-focused approach, but not at the sacrifice of power. He has showcased the ability to hit the ball out the other way. Rainer has the chance to stick at SS, but with added mass, he may have to move to a corner. Rainer feels like a safe combination of both floor, due to his plus barrel awareness, and a ceiling to dream on if the physical development continues. Offensive profile very similar to fellow Southern California prep star, Christian Yelich.


7. St. Louis CardinalsChase Burns, RHP, Wake Forest


The St. Louis Cardinals used to be the peak of player development. They were able to recycle top end talent into their MLB org, and it built the most consistent winner in all of baseball during the time frame from 2005-2020. Something since has been off. They have not developed as much homegrown talent, and it seems players are getting better when they leave their org. Well, Burns seems like the type of prospect you can’t mess up.

Burns has an argument to be made for two 80-grade offerings between his fastball and slider. The SL this season generated a 70.5% whiff rate on the season, while his FB has riding life up in the zone in the upper 90s flashing 101. His SB and CH took a huge step forward with the CB generating a 70% whiff rate as well. Assuming the Cardinals do not touch Burns, he has the potential to be a fast-rising ace level starter in the MLB.


8. Los Angeles AngelsJames Tibbs III, OF, Florida State


Tell me if you’ve heard this before. The Los Angeles Angels take an MLB ready college player. In the 2023 draft, the Angels selected Nolan Schanuel with their 1st pick and rushed him to the MLB. It has not been all sunshine and rainbows for Schanuel, but it shows the Angels impatience for drafting prospects that need to be developed. Those motivations could have been due to a limited time with Ohtani and Trout, but I do not expect this year to be different.

Tibbs is one of the most well-rounded bats in this year’s draft. He showcased loud contact consistently through this season 93.7 avg exit velocity, which led to 28 home runs and ACC Player of the Year honors. He also shows an advanced feel for the strike zone, only whiffing at a 21.9% rate. The combination of elite feel for the barrel, and plus power and hit tools should have Tibbs in a good position to be a quick riser through the MiLB.


9. Pittsburgh PiratesNick Kurtz, 1B, Wake Forest


A lot of the stuff you just read could be stated about Kurtz. The Pirates are going to prioritize an advanced position player to pair with their pitching heavy farm system. Jared Jones and Paul Skenes will only be in Pittsburgh for a limited amount of time, so they need reinforcements ASAP. Kurtz is a PA native and showcases some of the safest offensive tools in this year’s class.

Kurtz has the best feel for the strike zone in all of college baseball. He holds the Wake Forest record for walks in a career with 189 in 164 games. He walked 78 times this season in 54 games. He only chases out of the strike zone at 13.8% of the pitches he sees. Kurtz also flashes plus in-game power with a 94.4 average exit velocity. He ended his career with 61 home runs including 24 as a Sophomore and 22 as a Junior. The hit tool seemingly took a step backward, but he lost lineup protection in Brock Wilken, which led to being pitched around more frequently. Kurtz feels like a modern MLB hitter who will have a ton of success immediately in the next level.


10. Washington NationalsKonnor Griffin, OF/SS, Jackson Prep (MS)


Recent draft trends have seen the Nationals consistently prioritizing prep position players with freakish athleticism and high-ceiling potential. Over the last couple drafts, they have taken both Brady House and Elijah Green in the 1st round, while also trading for James Wood and Robert Hassell III. There is definitely an intention that if they are going to miss, they want to miss with athleticism and ceiling. Konnor Griffin flashes the athleticism to dream on. He is very young for the class, as a reclassification from the 2025 draft class, so that will appeal to model friendly teams (not the Nationals).

Griffin’s prospect profile is eerily similar to Brady House. Standing in at 6 foot 4, 205 lbs with long levers and plus bat speed, it is hard to not see the similarities. His calling card is power, and there are questions about the consistency of the hit tool. Where he starts to separate from House is with the plus spee, and plus arm that he showcases, which allows many to believe he could be an above-average defender at SS, and a gold glove caliber CF. Griffin has one of the highest ceilings in the class, but I must ask the same question I ask every year. Will the Nationals be able to develop that talent? That is the question that seems to halt the progress of the organization.


11. Detroit TigersCam Caminiti, LHP, Saguaro HS (AZ)


The Tigers do not fear drafting high ceiling, prep talents. Sometimes good decision-making is all about identifying market inefficiencies, and it seems like the Tigers believe (along with the Padres) that other organizations are undervaluing prep talent. During the 2021 draft, they took Jackson Jobe at the 3rd overall pick, which at the time seemed like a reach and now looks genius. During the 2023 draft, they went overslot for Max Clark and Kevin McGonigle over some top college bats. Caminiti seems like the most likely to fit that mold this year.

Caminiti is another reclassification from the 2025 draft class, making him 17 at the time of the draft. As mentioned earlier, model driven teams love young prep talents, which is why reclassifying up seems to be the more common trend. Standing at 6 foot 2, 195 lbs there is even more projectability to an arm that already flashes 98 in the tank. It is truly an effortless operation that the ball just explodes from due to his whippy arm action. If he continues to get grow and stronger, he could trend towards triple digits. The FB also has plus ride and carry up in the zone. He also showcases both a SL and a CB, that have distinct differences that both flash plus. He also has good feel for a CH, that is his main go to out pitch. Caminiti plays CF on the prep circuit, so a lot of people believe in the athleticism translating to the mound.


12. Boston Red SoxChristian Moore, 2B, Tennessee


Christian Moore is one of my favorite prospects in this year’s draft. He started the year projected outside the first round, but just flat out raked all season. There are questions about his positional value, but in this draft there are positional questions with every top college hitter. Moore was at his best against SEC competition this season, so he has showcased he can hit against high level pitching. He finished the season with 34 home runs while hitting .375.

Moore has some swing-and-miss concerns, but they took a massive step in the right direction this year. He punched out 67 times in 63 games in 2023, lowering that number to 49 in 72 games this season. During the 2023 season, he whiffed at 34.5% of pitches he saw, and he has lowered that number to 23% this past season. There are questions about velocity at the top of the zone, but that is a balance with a lot of new age hitter. Boston would be a great fit for Moore’s development.


13. San Francisco GiantsBraden Montgomery, OF, Texas A&M


The San Francisco Giants have been in the free agent market for high caliber OF in back-to-back offseasons. Montgomery might not be Arson Judge, but he is one of the most highly regarded hitters in this class. A broken ankle in the postseason halted what was one of the best seasons in the nation. He finished the year hitting .322 with 27 home runs in 61 games. His batted ball profile was even more impressive; Montgomery averaged an 98.7 mph exit velocity, while only whiffing at 25.6% of pitches. That is an impressive combination of both bat-to-ball skills and powers. The Giants will still be big game hunting in free agency, but Montgomery could help alleviate their outfield concerns.


14. Chicago CubsCam Smith, 3B, Florida State


The Chicago Cubs‘ 2023 first round pick, Matt Shaw, was an eerily similar profile to Smith. Shaw was a “data darling” with a 91.9 average exit velocity and an 83.0% contact rate. That combination of both contact ability and thump is what MLB orgs prioritize. During Smith’s 2024 season, he averaged 92.4 mph exit velocity, while making contact with 82.6% of pitches. They even both chased at a similar rate, with Smith chasing at 21.4% of pitches out of the zone, and Shaw chasing at 22.9%. You might think why would teams pick similar prospects that play the same position, but MLB organization have types. Smith fits the Cubs type, and I fully expect them to be interested in him at 14.


15. Seattle MarinersTrey Yesavage, RHP, East Carolina


One of my favorite matches in the draft. The Mariners have become the best organization in the league at developing starting pitchers, and Trey Yesavage has a lot to work with. I wrote about Yesavage rise this season, here. He flashes four plus pitches and dominated hitters this season to the tune of 145 strikeouts in 93.1 IP with a 2.03 ERA. His FB sits in the mid 90s with plus ride up in the zone. Yesavage pairs that with a splitter that tunnels well and falls of the table. Walks were a little bit of an issue with an 8.9% rate on the season. The Mariners are the org right now for pitching development, and I trust they would have success with Yesavage.


16. Miami MarlinsSeaver King, SS/OF, Wake Forest


It isn’t very common to be able to say one of the best athletes in the class is a college position player. Even less frequently are you able to say that with a guy who played most his career at a D2 school. But that is what Seaver King offers. There have been some whispers that he reminds people of Mookie Betts, and from an athletic standpoint, it holds validity. He showcases plus defense at both SS and CF, and has played 3B, 2B, and some Corner OF throughout his time in college. I’m sure he could figure out catching if he wanted to.

Bat speed is King’s best tool. It is one of the tools that you see the second he swings the bat. That bat speed allowed him to hit 30 extra-base hits in his first ACC season. There are some major approach concerns with King. He chased at 31.9% of pitches out of the strike zone this season. It is a free-swinger mentality, but it was not at the sacrifice of contact or contact quality. He only had a 21.6% whiff rate and a 93.2 mph avg exit velocity. If he refines his approach, this could be a steal at this point in the draft.


17. Milwaukee BrewersCarson Benge, OF/RHP, Oklahoma State


As a draft-eligible Sophomore, Benge impressed many both at the plate and on the mound. His calling card at the next level will be the bat. He hit .335 with 18 home runs and 24 doubles. Under the hood, his profile looks even better. He averaged 93.1 mph exit velocity, while making contact with 84.0% of pitches. That puts him on the same level of Bazzana and Condon in terms of contact quality and consistency. Benge also showcased solid approach with a 20% Chase rate. Combine all that and being young for his draft demographic, and you have another “data darling.” The Brewers are a model driven org, and I am sure this will all factor in to his consideration at this point in the draft. Benge just looks like a Brewer’s prospect.


18. Tampa Bay RaysJurrangelo Cijntje, BHP, Mississippi State


Quick question. What organization would be able to maximize a switch pitcher’s development the most? The Tampa Bay Rays. Cijntje just feels like a perfect fit for the Rays.

Cijntje is not simply just a switch pitcher, he also flashes plus stuff. On both sides combined, he averages 95.2 mph on the heater. The stuff is more high-octane and refined from the right side than the left. He strikes out 11.68 per 9 from the right side, and 10.19 per 9 from the left. He also commands the ball a little better from the right side with only 1.42 BB/9, compared to 5.23 from the left side. Cijntje also gave up 7 home runs in 32.2 IP left handed compared to only 4 home runs in 57 IP from the right side. The stuff is definitely better from the right side, but thankfully the majority of hitters will face him right-handed. The Rays will be able to be so creative with Cijntje that it will be fun to follow.


19. New York MetsBrody Brecht, RHP, Iowa


The New York Mets have seen an immediate return on Brandon Sproat from the 2023 draft class, and Brecht’s high octane profile is similar to Sproat’s. They are a little different as Brecht has better stuff, but worse command, but both are similar in frame and stuff. Sproat only walked 9.9% of hitters, while striking out 28.9%. Brecht walked 14.1% of hitters while striking out 36.5%.

Brecht’s calling card is his FB/SL combo. Both have flashed 80-grade potential, generating swing and miss at an elite rate. The FB sits in the 95-97 range topping at triple digits. If he can refine his command, the potential is to be the best arm in the class. But that is a major if. The reason many are so high on Brecht, even with concerns of strike throwing ability, is because the 2024 season was his second season focusing on baseball. He was a former two-sport athlete as a Wide Receiver for the Iowa football team. Many believe that with a continued focus on pitching only, his athleticism will translate. It is a high-risk, high-reward pick at this point in the draft.


20. Toronto Blue JaysCaleb Lomavita, C, California

The Toronto Blue Jays historically love Catchers that showcase the ability to hit. More times than not, they have identified those prospects in the international market, but as an organization I would imagine they would be interested in one in the draft. Lomavita fits the mold of the best offensive catcher in this class. He showcases a plus hit tool with above-average power for the position. During his Sophomore and Junior season he hit .316 and .322 with 16 home runs in 2023 and 15 home runs in 2024. All impressive numbers from the catcher position.

The questions surrounding Lomavita is whether he has the capabilities of sticking behind the plate. The Hawaii native is a plus athlete, who could be an above-average defender at both 3B and a corner OF spot, but his bat would have to improve. He struggles with receiving and throwing at time, but the Blue Jays have been historically successful with their defensive development for catchers. If he does move from behind the dish, his bat must improve. During the 2024 season, he averaged 85.4 mph exit velocity. He has shown the ability to pull the baseball in the air, which helps outperform below-average EV date, but the lack of thump is a concern. He also has an aggressive approach at the plate, with only a 4.0% BB rate. Assuming he can stick behind the dish, the bat will be serviceable, but at 3B or COF, he would need to hit more.


21. Minnesota TwinsRyan Waldschmidt, OF, Kentucky


Waldscmidt feels like a Twin to me. A relatively safe college bat with both power/speed potential is a trend the Twins seemingly lean toward. The 2024 season was the first moment that Waldschmidt made a name for himself in the first round of draft talks. He batted .333 with 14 home runs and 25 steals. His metrics are very impressive with a 92.6 avg exit velocity and an 80.2% contact rate. Waldschmidt showed an advanced approach with a 16.5% chase rate. Waldschmidt had a lot of success during the 2024 season, but under the hood, it seems like the prospect profile is even better.


22. Baltimore OriolesVance Honeycutt, OF, North Carolina


This match is one that draft and player development circles are hoping for. The Orioles have become the best offensive player development group in the league, and Honeycutt needs some refining to his game. I wrote in detail what the concerns are in my draft breakdown, here. Long story short, Vance is an elite athlete, 80-grade defender, 80-grade runner, 70-grade power, but he swings and misses WAY too much. If Vance is going to reach his MVP production ceiling, the Orioles are the best equipped to maximize it. My worry is the Orioles usually look to play the first round safer, and take high-ceiling shots later in the draft. They also need to eventually add pitching to their impressive farm system. One can dream, can’t I? Also imagining Enrique Bradfield and Honeycutt in the same outfield would be amazing.


23. Los Angeles Dodgers–  Ryan Sloan, RHP, York HS (IL) 


Another perfect fit for Vance Honeycutt, but in this scenario he is off the board. The Dodgers have become one of the best at talent identification and development, while being one of the most consistent winners in the MLB. They have consistently drafted at the back of the first round and found so much value. As of late the trends seem to be on high-ceiling high school talents. The last three draft picks have seen them take shots on high ceiling prospects in Bobby Miller (2020), Maddux Bruns (2021), and Kendall George (2023). As I said earlier in this piece, some orgs want to miss on potential, if they are going to miss.

Sloan fits the recent Dodgers mold. He stands at 6 foot 5 220 lbs, so the frame is extremely impressive. The FB sits 93-96 and has shown the ability to be up to 99. His CH is his best offspeed offering, which is a good sign for a young arm. That is the hardest pitch to develop at the next level. The SL is the main spin option and grades out above average. It is a three-pitch mix that has the potential to all be plus offerings if the command follows suit. The Dodgers will most likely maximize that potential, as they always do.


24. Atlanta BravesWalker Janek, C, Sam Houston State


For everything great the Braves have done at the MLB level, the draft has not been their greatest player acquisition avenue of late. Hurston Waldrep from last season has seemed like a great pick, but before that is not flush with talent. Their last successful pick was a college catcher in Shea Langliers. Walker Janek has an argument to be made as the best catcher in the class. His defense is good enough to stick behind the plate with plus arm strength. His numbers were very impressive with 17 home runs and a .368 average. The metrics are very positive as well with a 93.1 avg exit velocity, a 22.9% whiff rate, and a 24.7% chase rate. Coming from a small school is the only reason there is not more confidence in Janek’s profile, due to the perceived lack of competition.


25. San Diego PadresTheo Gillen, SS, Westlake HS (TX)


The Padres like to zig while everyone else zags. As every other organization leans more college, the Padres insist on taking prep talent. They have not taken a college player with their first pick since 2016. And in all honesty, they have been very successful with it. The list of first-round prep picks includes Mackenzie Gore, Ryan Weathers, CJ Abrams, Robert Hassell, Jackson Merrill, Dylan Lesko, and Dylan Head. An impressive list if you are going to go against conventional wisdom.

The best prep player available in this scenario is Theo Gillen. The tools are very impressive, and the profile is San Diego’s preference of Hit over power. He has showcased a smooth left-handed swing that has a line drive focused approach. As he continues to mature, physically and mentally, the power will continue to tick up. He has also showcased plus run times. All of those check every box of what the Padres love in their prospects. Gillen is most likely a 2B at the next level, but the bat is the calling card.


26. New York YankeesDakota Jordan, OF, Mississippi State


The Yankees would have their choice from their three favorite demographics. They could either go northeast prep SS in Luke Dickerson, college catcher in Malcom Moore or Jacob Cozart, or freak athlete with loud EV data in Dakota Jordan. I went with Dakota Jordan in this hypothetical. Jordan is one of the more impressive athletes in the sport, looking more like an SEC Linebacker than a OF. There were a lot of peaks and valleys to his game, but in his draft eligible Sophomore season, he hit .354 with 20 home runs in 63 games. The caveat there is the 84 strikeouts. His metrics are exactly what you would imagine. 96.1 avg exit velocity. 35% whiff rate. 28.7% chase rate. Take the good with the bad, but the Yankees have had a lot of success with a similar metric profile in Spencer Jones.


27. Philadelphia PhilliesWilliam Schmidt, RHP, Catholic HS (LA)


Another organization that is not afraid to take high ceiling prep players. When you are drafting later in the draft you have to be creative, and the Philllies have shown the ability to do that.

Schmidt might have the best two-pitch mix of all the prep pitching prospects. He already flashes an upper 90s FB, but there seems to be more in the tank with his 6 foot 4 180 lb frame. Assuming he physically matures, that FB will continue to tick up. Schmidt’s Breaking Ball is one of the best in the class spinning above 3,000 rpms. It tunnels well with his riding FB, and consistently fools hitters. The 3rd offering and control will need work, but the frame and present stuff have the looks of a high-level arm.


28. Houston AstrosTommy White, 3B, Louisiana State


The Astros had a pretty successful run with a 3B from LSU, when they took Alex Bregman at second overall in 2015. As Bregman enters free agency, the Astros are going to rekindle that relationship with Tommy White. If this was a popularity content, White would have his name called a lot earlier. The public knows White due to his unique style, and postseason heroics during LSU National Championship run. He has also been one of the best college baseball players over the last three seasons. White hit .355 on his career with 75 career home runs, including 27 as a true freshman at NC State.

The questions around White are not about the bat. He is most likely a 1B at the next level, but his defense at 3B has consistently improved every year. I would imagine whatever org he is drafted by will give him the chance to stick at 3B. The Astros would be a good org to maximize White’s potential offensive impact.


29. Arizona DiamondbacksKellon Lindsey, SS, Hardee HS (FL)


The Diamondbacks love their athletes. Kellon Lindsey is one of the best in the class. His best tool is his 80-grade speed that translates into games. The Florida native just recently decided to focus on baseball instead of football, and that has led to him being one of the quickest risers in the class. The hit tool is ahead of his power by a decent margin, but that could come with physical and mental development. He is new to just focusing on baseball, so the sky is the limit for what he can continue to grow into. Arizona has shown an affinity for guys who can run, and Lindsey definitely can run. Their development will be tested but Lindsey feels like a Diamondback.


30. Texas RangersBilly Amick, 3B, Tennessee


The last six Rangers first-round picks have been college players. They definitely have an affinity for gaining the most information on a player they can get. We can assume they will go the college route, but the question is who. Billy Amick is my favorite in this hypothetical scenario, but the Rangers have definitely gone off the beaten past in the last few years.

Amick had an impressive season in the middle of the National Championship lineup. He had a hot start to the season, but then an injury seemed to halt that production. He finished the season with a .306 avg and 23 home runs in 65 games. The majority of that production came in the first half of the season. The batted ball profile is impressive with a 94.6 avg exit velocity, but the swing decisions are not great. He whiffed at 29.3% of pitches and chased 30.9% of pitches out of the zone. Not an ideal mix. In all reality though, an approach is easier to fix than strength deficiencies. Amick is an unfinished product and would do well in the Rangers offensive development system.
