Another guy I would keep an eye on is Ian Clarkin-lhp, throws a 94 mph fast ball but will sit at 91-92 as he matures. Big time curve, durable, big leg kick. Has a developing change. His pitching motion is a little abrupt and has inconsistent stride but that's fixable. Throws at a 3/4 slot.
Yeah when I asked that it wasn't necessarily a positive. I really am not sure if a Dunn type of player is actually helpful or hurtful to your team. Of course the HR's are great as well as the RBI, but if every other part of your game is below average then is it worth it? I honestly don't know and am curious what guys think.
Body: Bryant has a big strong mature fame. He has Long limbs and a long torso with a very muscular frame.
Swing: Bryant has a wide slightly open stance with high hands and up and down bat movement. He has a very low stride to the plate, a good weight shift and short backward hand draw. He has a quick bat with above average to plus bat speed. This along with his short direct to the ball swing and superior leverage give him plus power. He also shows plus plate coverage and batting eye, which adds to being an above average to plus batter.
Base running: Bryant is far from being a plus runner but he also doesnít clog the bases either. He could be said to have average speed but it would be on the lower range of average bordering on below average.
Defense: I didnít get a chance to see him play the field during the visit to see him play. But that being said I have seen him to play the field last season and I then saw him play 3B and OF. He shows a plus arm but this footwork can be a little sloppy at 3B at times and there is question if he has the speed to handle OF. But he has very good hands and is a very hard worker. I do think he should be given a chance to play 3B at the next level but his future maybe either in the OF or at 1B.
Summary: Bryant maybe the top pure bat in this yearís draft class. His power, ability to make connect and knowledge of the strike zone makes him a legit threat at the next level. His other tools are at least average but his future will be determined by his bat.
