2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: English was drafted by the Rays in the 13th round out of high school. Instead of signing, he went to the University of South Carolina. Three years later, he was drafted two rounds earlier. English is 5-10 and maybe 170 pound. He is a tremendous defensive outfielder. He covers a ton of ground in centerfield. He has a strong and accurate arm. Earlier in the season, he struggled, but he made a couple of adjustments and became more of a line drive hitter. He is primarily a pull hitter. He likely won’t hit a lot of home run, but he will hit doubles and turn some of them into triples.
