Brad Secrist is a 6'4" left handed hitting outfielder from Missouri who we’ve seen in the past. He has an above average MLB tool set and a high physical ceiling. In addition to being a 6'4" left handed hitter with the potential to add 20+ quality pounds of muscle, Secrist is a 6.94 runner with a present average Major League outfield arm despite mediocre throwing mechanics. We’ve seen Secrist take batting practice a couple of times and he’s a much better game hitter for us so far. Secrist will show serious LH power to both left centerfield and pulling the ball, and that power should just keep improving. He can be long to the ball and hit around it occasionally, but he has quick hands on his pitch and the ball jumps in a hurry on contact. With good coaching and added strength, Secrist is the type of player who could have lots of success through college and be a solid professional draft choice when he’s 21 years old. He could get some serious draft interest in 05. Brad is also an off the board student with an exceptional academic record.

Brad Secrist is a 2005 OF from Joplin, MO. Secrist was one of the most projectable and talented position players at the Academic Showcase. He’s a 6'4", 185 lb. athlete with broad shoulders and long arms who could get really strong as he fills out. Secrist runs very well for a big young man and his arm strength projects him well to be able to play at any position in the future. His best tool is the power potential in his left handed bat. Secrist’s swing right now is raw and inconsistent, but when he gets everything coordinated and takes the bat head through the ball, it explodes off his bat. Secrist tends to be too much opposite field oriented and will frequently loop his hands under the ball, where he should be looking to drive the ball aggressively. A more consistent and sounder approach could put him among the top power prospects in the Midwest. Brad is an excellent student and needs to be followed closely.
