San Diego’s Kris Bryant (CIF/OF) is one of the better raw power bats in the draft class, displaying legit plus-plus power consistently in batting practice while showing some ability to manifest in-game, as well. At his best, Bryant drives the ball to the right-center gap with authority and shows an ability to turn on fastballs on the inner-half. There is some swing-and-miss to his game, as well as stiffness in the field. Warts and all, Bryant could be a top ten pick in June due to the increasing scarcity of power bats at the prospect ranks and the thin crop of collegiate position players draft-eligible this year. Today's video give a look at Bryant as a high schooler and as a freshman. More recent video was featured in the College Infielder installation of the Scouting the Draft Series.
This video features Bryant in action his freshman year at the University of San Diego, with the Toreros hosting Oklahoma.
