Khalil Greene, ss

School: Clemson U. Class: Sr.
Hometown: Key West, Fla.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 5-10 Wt.: 190 Birthdate: 10/21/79
Previously Drafted: Cubs '01 (14th round).
Scouting Report: Teammate Jeff Baker was more heralded, but it's Greene who remains the frontrunner for Baseball America's 2002 College Player of the Year. Returning for his senior season after the Cubs drafted him in the 14th round last June, Greene has learned to extend his arms and hit for power. He batted .475-22-75 during the regular season, breaking several school and Atlantic Coast Conference records in the process. He has a good two-strike approach and is patient enough to take walks. While there's some thought he might lack the range to play shortstop as a pro, he maneuvers well there and has an accurate arm. At worse, he'll be an offensive second baseman. He fits the Athletics prototype and could be targeted by Oakland with one of its four sandwich picks.
