Scouting Report

Bishop's older brother Braden went to Washington and was a third-round pick of the Mariners in 2015. Hunter has similar athleticism with much more strength in a 6-foot-2, 205-pound package. The younger Bishop was a strong prep football prospect as a wide receiver and was expected to walk on for the Huskies before shifting to a baseball commitment at Arizona State. He gained draft helium with a dynamic performance at the Boras Classic tournament, going 8-for-10 with four extra-base hits at the event, including a home run. Bishop has 70 speed on the 20-80 scouting scale, above-average arm strength and the twitchy combination of strength and athleticism for scouts to dream on his power-speed upside. However, while he has plenty of bat speed, his offensive approach is raw, as is his swing, which he doesn't repeat consistently. Scouts haven't seen Bishop against a ton of quality pitching, and he's rolled over and slapped his share of contact when he has faced strong competition. Typical of high school hitters, Bishop's draft stock will be volatile, and many teams stopped crosschecking him about half-way through the spring. But others were all in on him in the first two to three rounds.
