30 915 Los Angeles Angels Mike Papi OF Pa.
Mike Papi plays shortstop for his high school team but profiles as an outfielder in pro ball. He is a 6-foot-2, 190-pound grinder who bats left and throws right. He has a strong arm that some call above-average and can touch 90 off the mound. He is solid at the plate, an average hitter with average power. A strong spring performance had scouts going back to see more of Papi late in the season, as they try to assess whether he's worth buying out of Virginia.
