Blount worked through the ball well on defense and fielded the ball cleanly with sure hands. Blount had a very good showcase with the bat. He took a strong batting practice, showing good bat speed and the ability to turn on balls with authority and pull them hard. He had good extension through the ball. During games, Blount had more of an opposite field approach and showed impressive power in that direction, hitting a couple of doubles deep to right field.
