Elliott has a chance to join Jordan Brewer, Jordan Nwogu and Jesse Franklin as top-three round outfielders out of Michigan in the last four years. After two solid seasons with Michigan during his first two seasons (.263/.394/.405), he led all hitters in the Cape Cod League with a .344 average while walking almost as frequently (17) as he struck out (20). He had a career year in 2022 where he hit .337/.460/.630 with 16 home runs and 17 doubles. His previous season-high in homers was just five. Elliott’s swing is a bit unorthodox. He starts with a sizable leg kick and has a flat bat path with a pull-side approach. Elliott has been able to crush pitches up in the zone with that path, but there’s a slight hole on the outer third and he swings and misses at a solid clip against breaking and offspeed pitches. He has hammered fastballs and done well against velocity with solid bat speed, and he rarely expands the zone with a career 16% walk rate. The 6-foot, 185-pound outfielder has average tools across the board—though he will turn in solid home-to-first run times—and is likely a corner outfielder at the next level after mostly playing right field in college.
