Some Impressions from the Nationals Batting Practice
Dylan Davis has a nice line drive swing and some strength but I have to respectfully disagree with those people who think he's a better outfield prospect than pitcher. I know there is a stigma about 6-0 right handed pitchers but there is against 6-0 right handed hitting corner outfielders, too. He has no potential position tool that matches a 90-95 mph fastball and mid 80's slider with tilt.
2012 C Clint Coulter (6-3, 200, Camas, WA) swung the bat really well and showed promising pull power. He has some effort in his swing but he also has bat speed and good hitting rhythm.
2011 IF Trevor Mitsui (6-4, 210, Lynnwood, WA) has a nice swing and good leverage at contact. He has the bat speed and strength to lift the ball out of the park when he squares it up.
2011 OF Spencer O'Neil (6-4, 185, Kennewick, WA) took a very, very nice BP, squaring up everything and starting to show hints that he might be getting stronger. His build and swing isn't dissimilar to another O'Neill (Paul....not relation).
2012 SS/RHP Tyler Gonzalez is actually from San Antonio, TX, not from the Northwest, but is hearing playing for the Nationals. He, too, looks like he's got stronger from when I last saw him at the PG National Underclass Showcase in June and hit the ball very consistently hard with a very aggressive pull swing.
