Scouting Report

Busch this spring was a key piece of North Carolina’s College World Series team and continued to stand out at the plate over the summer in the Cape Cod League. Busch has an excellent feel for hitting. The lefthanded hitter this year walked more than he struck out and consistently barrels up balls. He generates impressive bat speed, which leads to plus power that he gets to well in games. Busch’s biggest drawback is that he’s a slightly undersized first baseman at a listed 6-foot, 207 pounds. He may not be limited to first base, however, as some evaluators believe he could move around the infield or to an outfield corner. But if he keeps hitting the way he did this year his size and position won’t matter.
