Academic Class:Senior

Focus Area
Hitting ability:Hutting can flat out hit with a pure left-handed stroke that looks like it could lead to a .300 average in the future.
Power:He's not a huge power guy, but he could run into 10-12 homers a year. His strength is really to the opposite-field gap
Running speed:He doesn't run particularly well.
Base running:He's got very good instincts and will steal bases even though he's a below-average runner.
Arm strength:He's got a fringy average throwing arm.
Fielding:He's a fringy outfielder defensively. He plays a decent center field now because of his instincts and baseball know-how, but he's bound to be a left fielder in the future.
Range:He doesn't have a ton of range, but makes up for it because of the aforementioned instincts.
Physical Description:Hutting is a left-handed hitter who resembles a Dave Dellucci or Jeremy Reed.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths: Pure hittability, with an advanced approach at the plate. He's got great makeup and instincts for the game.
Weaknesses:He's just a hitter. He doesn't have any other tools.
Summary:Those who like Hutting will be all about the bat. He's got a smooth left-handed stroke that should allow him to hit for average in the future. He doesn't have a a lot of power, but might run into a few homers along the way. He doesn't have much in the way of other tools, but he's got good instincts and a great feel for the game. He's not the kind of toolsy high school outfielder that gets people buzzing, but his bat should get plenty of attention come Draft day.
