Witherspoon will likely have to wait until 100 or more players are drafted before his name is called. But he has a better shot of being a big leaguer than many of those who will be taken before him. As a productive lefthanded-hitting center fielder who can play all three outfield spots, he projects as a likely fourth outfielder who provides defensive value. In center field, Witherspoon is an above-average defender thanks to good reads and routes to go with average speed. Offensively, he's a streaky hitter, but when locked in, he can mash. His 10 home runs lead Tulane as of mid-May, when he was hitting .337/.449/.589. Both his power and hitting ability are fringe-average to average. If he gets everything out of his bat as a pro he could be a second-division regular, but with his average arm he has an excellent fallback option as a versatile reserve.
