Average raw power; mild leverage; raw plays down in game due to average bat speed and unbalanced bottom half against spin.
~4.20 home to first times; average speed and second gear; agile player.
Speed and agility to play all three OF positions; profiles best on corners due to lack of second gear athleticism; efficient first jump and displays perfect reads and routes; agressive OF.

Yastrzemski lacks a carrying tool but the skill set will be valuable in the majors. He can play all three outfield positions and can be a useful option as a second division starter or a 4th OF. His hustle and makeup makes for a solid bench option or club depth. The profile is nearly a finished product with success in the upper minors.
Round Drafted: 14th round, 2013
Why: 4 year starter at Vanderbilt; average tools across board with strong makeup; bloodlines.
