No. 5:  Kyle Battle 6-foot-1, 170 pound, OF, 2016 (Old Dominion)

The Old Dominion commit is an athletic outfielder that has a very projectable body.  Battle has the ability to run down the ball in the gaps and has the instincts/first step quickness, to make difficult plays look easy.  He is an imposing figure in the batters box with strong hands and elite bat speed. 

Report from the Top Prospect Games:  Battle set up in a balanced stance with high hands at the plate.  Took a short path to the baseball and utilized a slight inward turn in his lower half to generate bat speed (91 MPH Exit Velocity) and power.  He has minimal movement in his upper body and has a line drive path to the ball and through extension.  He has a gap-to-gap stroke that will produce doubles with his athleticism.  In the field, Battle average arm strength (79 MPH) and is accurate to the bases.  He uses his athleticism to get to the ball quickly with the ability to be a above average defender.
