College: San Diego State
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 205 lbs

Drafted in the 15th round (443rd overall) by the Washington Nationals in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
Fein arrived at San Diego State as one of its top recruits in the 2018 class and quickly became a staple of the Aztecs lineup. He was named Mountain West Conference co-freshman of the year in 2019, hit well as a sophomore before the 2020 season shut down and hit .389/.456/.553 as a junior this spring. Fein is a big, 6-foot-3, 210-pound outfielder with impressive contact skills and latent raw power he hasn’t tapped into yet. He has a solid feel for the barrel, has the strength to drive balls when he connects and uses the whole field. Fein mostly drives the ball on a line up the middle and the opposite way for singles and doubles, but he flashes plus raw power to his pull side. He hit only four home runs this spring in a hitter-friendly conference, so evaluators aren’t sold he’ll be able to tap into his power in the future. He is a below-average runner who played right field in college and projects to left field in pro ball with his below-average arm. He may have to move to first base if he slows down any more. Fein’s physicality and knack for contact have teams interested on the draft’s second day. How much he’s able to tap into his power in pro ball will determine how high he rises.
