Prospects Plus: Colin Moran
Name: Colin Moran
School: North Carolina
Prospect Status: 2013 draft eligible
Monday night vs. Clemson: 1 for 4 with a home run and 3 RBI
Positives: Watched him during his game against Clemson on Monday night. During his first at bat Moran showed a good eye in drawing a walk. During his second at bat Moran hit an opposite field home run, nice powering going the other way. If a team drafts him, they are drafting a bat. Moran is one of the best pure hitters in his class and his bat has the potential to carry him a long way at the next level. While power development will eventually play a large role in how successful he is as a hitter, the pure hitting tools are evident and he has the statistics to back them up
Weakness: Moran isn't exceptional defensively and he won't be anything more than average at third base at the next level.
