Focus Area
Comments
Hitting Ability:Dominguez has been very inconsistent with his overall hitting ability.
Power:He's got plus raw power.
Running Speed:He runs OK for a player his size.
Base running:He's never going to use it as a huge tool, but he's been known to steal a few bases here and there.
Arm Strength:He's got a plus arm at third.
Fielding:He should be fine at third base.
Range:He moves pretty well in the infield.
Physical Description:No one looks the part of a pro prospect more than Dominguez, who has one of the best bodies in the Draft class.
Medical Update:An elbow injury forced him to red-shirt his freshman year (2006), but he's fine now.
Strengths:Plus raw power and arm strength.
Weaknesses:While he's capable of doing a lot of things well, he does few of them consistently.
Summary:One of the bigger enigmas in the Draft class, Dominguez is eligible as a sophomore after red-shirting his freshman year back in 2006. Healthy now, he's been an impact player at the college level this season, but his performance has been extremely inconsistent. He'll look outclassed one moment and in a league of his own the next, leaving many a scout to scratch his head. Still, his size, strength, athleticism and potential all should pique someone's interest early enough.
