Position: RF, LF, 1B
Height: 6' 1"
He was born in the sin city. The Twins drafted him in the 8th round of the 2010 First Year Player Draft out of the University of Kentucky.
In 132 games last season(all with the Snappers), he hit .253 with 34 doubles and 16 HRs and 74 RBIs.
Why he has potential:
-He only hit 3 home runs in 2010(64 games) but jumped to 16 in 2011 and has been on pace to pass that mark this season
-He has been hitting well with runners on base.
-He is a solid defensive player. He has a .984 fielding percentage. In 121 games playing in his main position in right field, he has just committed 5 errors.
-He was also an MiLB.com organization all-star last season.
-He averaged a strikeout a game last season and so far this season. His strikeouts double his walk total.
-His career .260 batting average isn't anything to brag about either.
All in all, I think this guy has some potential. If he can get better plate discipline, his number of strikeouts will go down and as a result his BA will go up. If his latest power surge continues, I believe he can be a real power threat.
