Binghamton Mets (AA, Mets)
Professional on the field the entire series.
45; Second Division Starter
Above-average bat speed; uppercut swing; short arms help quicken bat through zone; lacks extension; quiet bottom half; mild load; stays balanced; recognizes spin; premium approach; uppercut and lack of extension will give issues handling hard run outside and FB on the hands inside.
Plus raw power; uppercut swing and above-average bat speed; power can play average in-game.
4.32 home to first; lacks a second gear; speed plays slightly better in Lf.
Adventurous in LF; below-average reads and routes; footwork is inconsistent; pure LF profile.
Average arm strength; plays down and lacks carry due to short arms and poor footwork.
Conforto displays an average bat, which will allow him to play as a regular in the majors. He is a LF only profile, which hinders his overall value. Conforto will hit enough to be a regular, but I did not see anything more than an average regular. There is minimal risk, as he was a seasoned college player.
Round Drafted: 1st round (10th overall), 2014
Why: Seasoned college bat with potential for average hit tool and power; quick moving.
