Tim Merritt, ss
U. of South Alabama


Merritt is a versatile player who elicits varying opinions from scouts. Those who like him think he might be able to play shortstop and give him credit for speed, arm strength and line-drive pop. Others don't believe he has a particular talent that stands out and project him as a second baseman. His best tool may be his bat. He has played the outfield in college and for Team USA, but he lacks the speed needed for center field and the power desired for the corners.
