2003 South Underclass Showcase   Jul 23, 2003
PG Grade: 7.5
Hinze is a strong power hitter that showed some unique hitting traits at his age. At 6 foot tall he has a thick 220 pound frame and uses all of it when he swings the wood. He used an open stance and closes up to the ball as he gets the bat through the zone with Major League bat-speed. He showed Big League power and fast hands. The ball came off his bat extremely fast. He hits with a professional approach of knows how to swing it against strong pitching. In the field he showed a good arm at first base and good mobility and light feet for a big guy. He can afford to improve his body composition a little. He runs the bases OK for a big power hitting first baseman. He needs to be followed because his bat could turn him into one of the top power guys in the 2005 class.
