From MLB.com Draft Scouting Report:
"Teams interested in the University of Indiana outfielder will be buying the bat, as that's the one tool that stands out for the left-handed hitter. He's a solid hitter who seems to have overcome some holes in his swing, making adjustments to continue performing. He's got power, winning the Big Ten Triple Crown in 2010 as a sophomore. The power numbers have fallen off with the new bats, which might lead some to question if his power will translate to wood. He doesn't run or throw that well, limiting him to left field, and there are those who think he's marginal there, at best, with some thinking a move to first base might be essential. Those limitations might impact his stock, but his pure hitting ability should interest someone in the early stages of the Draft."
