A solid all-around player with Oregon, Steer is a hit-over-power, utility-type player with impressive defensive ability. Standing at just 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, Steer isn’t physically imposing and doesn’t have many loud tools, but he does everything on the field well. This spring, he hit .356/.460/.510 through his first 54 games—leading the team in average and RBIs—and has consistently put together good at-bats going back to his freshman year. Over his first 160 games at Oregon, Steer struck out 86 times (12.1 percent) compared to 70 walks (9.9 percent). He performed well in the Cape Cod League last summer as well, where his Orleans teammates voted him co-MVP (along with Vanderbilt outfielder J.J. Bleday) thanks to a .304/.351/.481 line and outstanding defense at both second and third base. Steer has a strong, accurate arm with good footwork at both positions and does an excellent job charging the baseball and gaining ground. Steer projects as a utility-type player at the next level who could hit for a high average.
