A three-year starter at third base for the Rebels, Keenan feasted on the non-conference portion of Ole Miss’ schedule before the coronavirus shut down the season, hitting .403/.488/.791 with seven home runs in only 17 games. Keenan’s plus power is legitimate—he also led Ole Miss with 15 home runs in 2019. If scouts were confident Keenan could stay at third base, he’d likely go higher. But he’s listed at 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, which means he’s heavier than any current MLB third baseman other than Vladimir Guerrero Jr.—and heavier than any third baseman in MLB history who played 500 or more games at third other than Pablo Sandoval and Pedro Alvarez. Keenan’s hands are soft and he has an accurate arm, but his range is quite limited. As a first baseman, Keenan should be fine and his bat looks potent enough to make the switch. He has shown that he will take his walks if a pitcher tries to nibble and if they leave something over the plate, he has all-fields power. There aren’t many college hitters who can hit for average and power, so Keenan should go high in the draft even with defensive concerns.
