Richard Lewis, rhp
Georgia Tech


While Teixeira was sidelined, Lewis was the glue that held the Georgia Tech offense together. He moved to shortstop from second base, allowing the Yellow Jackets to get a better bat in the lineup, and emerged as the team's best all-around hitter. His hands are his best tool, giving him bat speed on offense and reliability and a quick pivot on defense. He's intelligent and runs well, and he could develop more power as he matures. Lewis probably lacks the arm to play shortstop as a pro, but he should be an above-average second baseman, both offensively and defensively.
