Mitch Haniger Perfect Game profile

Position:  OF

Hometown:  Santa Clara, Calif.
Previously Drafted:  Mets '09 (31)

Projected Draft Round:  1S, 2

An athletic talent in a pro-like 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame, Haniger is a complete package, capable of showcasing all five tools—particularly power and arm strength.

He makes consistent, hard contact and his raw power has started to evolve into a legitimate weapon, though is still mostly to the gaps.
