MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2019 High 50 40; 4th OF/Below-Average Regular No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Average bat speed; loose wrists; smooth and easy swing; moderate barrel control; front side can leak as RHH; mild load with toe tap; stays balanced; sprays the entire field; mild recognition of spin; solid approach; can beat upstairs with velocity; swing is more consistent as a LHH.
Power 30 Fringe raw power; linear swing; swing is more conducive for gap-to-gap power.
Baserunning/Speed 60 4.06, 4.07, 4.09 home to first; quick bursts; agility, speed, and a second gear; athleticism displays in OF and on bases.
Glove 60 Efficient reads and routes; speed and athleticism; instinctual fielder with correct first step; plus range; covers the gaps.
Arm 40 Fringe arm strength; lacks carry; accurate throws.
Overall

Mullins is a plus CF with moderate barrel control, profiling as a potential regular up the middle. His instincts and athleticism help to play up his game. There is high risk due to his limited experience against advanced competition and reliance on the hit tool actualizing. At the worst, Mullins provides value as a depth option or 4th OF.

Round Drafted: 13th round, 2015
Why: Athletic CF with plus speed and barrel control.
