Like Newell, Beck has a first-round frame and tools to match, and he’s shown flashes of first-round production, though he’s not a finished product. He put together a very solid spring for the Volunteers, hitting .271/.336/.523 with 15 homers and 16 doubles, but his strikeout rate remained high (60 K to 24 BB). He’s hitting .243/.364/.405 with two homers, four doubles and 10 RBIs in 74 at-bats this summer, and plate discipline remains the No. 1 knock on him, as he has 32 strikeouts against 13 walks. In our first two looks, Beck struck out five times, swinging through four fastballs and one curveball. But he busted out in a big way in our third look, hitting five balls on the screws that resulted in four hits, three of them rocket doubles, with exit speeds as high as 103 mph. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, Beck is built like a prototype right fielder with plus raw arm strength (though his throws can be erratic at times). His plus raw power from the right side also profiles in right, and he can drive the ball with authority from the left-field line to dead-center. With a medium/high hand setup and a big leg kick, Beck generates excellent leverage, but he seems to get fooled too often by breaking balls and doesn’t make great two-strike adjustments. But his power and athleticism are valued commodities, and he has a chance to be a day one draft pick if he can improve his offensive approach and perform at a high level next spring.

Strong and athletic bodied at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, Beck is a natural hitter with both balance and strength in the box. Showed above average to better raw power to all fields in batting practice. Also has above average arm strength, yet will need to improve accuracy for his arm to play at that grade in games. Ran below average down the line on a 6-3 ground out, but has an athletic stride and is likely an average to better runner underway. After being selected by Boston in the 14th round of the 2018 draft, the right-handed hitter has the size, tools and bat to develop into a top round pick for 2022. Beck profiles best to right field in pro ball and reminds somewhat of a Hunter Renfroe type.
