Instinctive, confident, athletic position player with the ability to spray the ball, Hayes does a lot of things right. He holds down third exceptionally well, is aggressive on the basepaths, has bat control as well as plus bat speed. He lacks the power for third base, which might be okay for the creative and progressive Pirates, still a move off of third is likely. Depending on the team and their criteria for power at the corners, Hayes projects to be a major-league third baseman with the ability to cover other positions.
