Mears is a 6-foot-3, 235-pound outfielder who is committed to Purdue. He has plenty of natural strength and scouts believe he could still add more weight, which he’ll need to carefully maintain. Mears is lively in the batter's box, showing quick hands and plus bat speed. He creates natural loft with his swing and has plus raw power, though he will need to continue refining his approach to get to it regularly. He has performed well with the bat this spring in front of plenty of higher-level evaluators. Despite a lack of pure instinct and only an average run tool, Mears is athletic and evaluators think he will be fine in the outfield, though he’ll definitely be in a corner.
