    2nd round 6th pick 2018 MLB Draft Greyson Jenista 1B Wichita State (KS)

    Jenista was the most improved Cape Cod League player from 2016 to 2017, improving his batting line from .229/.301/.321 to .310/.391/.401. He also won the prestigious summer circuit's MVP award and established himself as having one of the best combinations of physicality and athleticism among college position players in the 2018 Draft. He and Alec Bohm could double the number of Wichita State hitters ever selected in the first round, following Joe Carter (1981) and Casey Gillaspie (2014). Jenista has exceptional hand-eye coordination, allowing him to repeatedly barrel balls even though he still can get fooled by breaking balls. His left-handed swing presently is geared more to line drives, but his size and strength create plenty of raw power that's more obvious during batting practice than in games. He's a patient hitter who's not afraid to work deep counts and will take walks when he's pitched around. For a 6-foot-4, 220-pounder, Jenista has a surprisingly broad base of tools. He focused on getting in better shape in 2017, improving his speed to above average and looking surprisingly efficient while playing center field on the Cape. He has played mostly first base and right field for the Shockers, has a solid arm and profiles best at the latter position.

    So an OF really. I like adding a bat here, especially a bit older guy who may be MLB ready sooner.

    Posted this in the draft thread but read his power could end up as high as a 70 grade. Also supposed to be a much better than expected athlete for his size.
