Byron Buxton MLB Draft Profile

Byron Buxton, Senior, Outfield, High School


Byron Buxton is a great athlete. He has great speed and a good arm, which he shows off playing quarterback for his high school team. But it is his quick and fluid swing that all the scouts are raving about. He has a frame that looks like he can add size so he should develop some pop in his swing. If the power does develop, he has the makings of a rare five tool player.

Final Projection:

Buxton is a great athlete who fields his position well. He is a dangerous base runner and projects as a great hitter at the next level. The talented young Buxton looks to be a late first round selection.
