A physical righthander hitter out of Chicago, Hordges has tantalizing raw power in his bat, but some real defensive and hit-tool questions that will need to be ironed out. Listed at 6-foot-2, 212 pounds, Hodges has a low hand-set in the batter’s box with significant bat waggle, but he consistently makes hard contact in batting practice and hit a no-doubt home run during this summer’s Area Code Games. Hodges has a below-average arm thanks in part to a funky arm action, and he will be limited to a corner, whether that winds up being first base or in the outfield. Hodges is committed to Arkansas.
