2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: At 6-1 and 220 pounds, Park has strength and a mammoth amount of power. He, along with Miguel Sano and Adam Brett Walker provide the Twins with three guys in the organization with 8 power (on a scout’s 2-8 scale). He is going to strikeout a lot, and it will certainly be an adjustment, but if he can make it, he should be a force in the middle of the Twins lineup. One of the questions is whether he’ll be able to adjust to mid-to-upper 90s fastballs with his big swing. He has won three gold glove awards in the KBO and could play some at first base. He has below average speed.
