|Tanos was a high school teammate of Josh Vitters, now a top prospect in the Cub organization and the 3rd overall pick in the 2007 draft. Tanos is a hyper, high energy player with a strong, mature frame. An infielder, he profiles best at 2B or 3B but defense is not his best attribute. Tanos has a quick bat which generates excellent bat speed. He takes a big cut and will fail to square up many pitches, but his 10 home runs, .638 slugging pct. and .427 obp in JC ball this year give a hint of his offensive potential.

|Santa Ana JC has produced many fine players, among them Braves pitching star Kris Medlen. Rigthander Hively, a tall and rangy righthander, may follow in that tradition. He smoothly delivers a 88-89 mph fastball from a frame that promises more velocity in the future.
