Cape CodShowed run game-stopping abilities with an above average arm that produced 1.88 and 1.98 in-game POP times. He kept it simple with short, direct footwork which led to a quick release and accurate throws. In the batter’s box the left handed hitter set up with an open stance, showed fair bat speed and worked inside the ball for hard contact to the opposite field. With above average raw power, there wasn’t much game power production in the Cape (five XBH in 120 at-bats), but he has solid bat to ball skills and slugged .502 (18 doubles, 10 HR) this past spring. Combine those numbers with his strong defensive abilities and it will likely lead him to be considered in the top five rounds or higher next summer.
