OF Jake Swanson (Grant, 2023) has upside on both sides of the ball, and he showed that to our scouts on Sunday. A 6-foot, 180-pound left/left athlete, Swanson used his levers to flash above-average bat strength in BP, sending his furthest ball an estimated distance of 349 feet, per TrackMan. Where Swanson flashed the most was with his arm strength, as he uncorked the hardest throw home from the outfield we’ve seen this winter so far at 92 mph during his defensive workout. He hopped on the mound later on in the day as well and reached an 84 mph max with his fastball, too.
