Kris Bryant, 1B/3B, University of San Diego
Class: Junior; Height: 6-5; Weight: 215; B/T: R/R
Easily the best bat in a weak college class, Bryant is the homerun leader in DI with 31. And through his first 58 games, the corner infielder is hitting an incredible .340/.500/.860 with an otherworldly .544 wOBA. He’s also added 13 doubles, three triples, and seven stolen bases. He’s also sporting a 62-to-40 walk to strikeout ratio as well.
Projection: After hitting .365/.482/.599 and .366/.483/.671 during his first two seasons, Bryant is no one year wonder. And his plate discipline has increasingly gotten better during his three-year career as well. His bat, obviously, plays far better at third and he profiles as a middle of the order hitter, capable of slugging .290/.360/.540 with 30+ dingers. His father, Mike, spent two seasons (1980-81) in the Red Sox organization as an outfielder.
