After playing shortstop nearly every day for Tennessee as a sophomore, the Vols slid Lipcius to third base this year, validating what pro scouts were already saying. Lipcius isn’t a shortstop, but he can be an average third baseman with an above-average arm. His hands work well and he has good body control despite slow feet. He’s a well-below average runner. At the plate, Lipcius is an average hitter. He uses the entire field with plenty of bat speed, but he has a long swing path. When he gets his foot down on time he has above-average power—his 16 home runs were second to only J.J. Bleday in the Southeastern Conference heading into the SEC Tournament. Lipcius’ twin brother, Luc, also plays for Tennessee and could be drafted.
