Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Cox has an excellent hitting approach and makes consistent contact.
Power:He hit for power last year, but the power numbers haven't been there this season. It has led to questions about whether he'll have power at the next level.
Running Speed:He is a marginal runner.
Base running:He's fine on the bases, but nothing special.
Arm Strength:He has an average arm.
Fielding:He's adequate to average as a third baseman.
Range:He has average range.
Physical Description:Cox is a compact, strong and fairly athletic infielder.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:His overall hitting approach.
Weaknesses:His other tools grade out average as best; there's a question as to whether he'll hit for power.
Summary:Put simply, Cox is a hitter. Once regarded as a legitimate two-way player, the focus has changed as his hitting ability has developed faster than his pitching. He's nothing spectacular at third, but should be able to stay there. The main question is how much power he'll show as a pro and how it's answered could determine his Draft status.
