Greg Bird first put himself on the scouting radar when he was the catcher for righthander Kevin Gausman, who is now at Louisiana State. Bird has a 6-foot-4, 205-pound frame and mostly played first base this year, and that's where he projects as a pro. There's obvious strength in his lefthanded swing. It can get a little long at times, but he has good bat speed and gets plenty of loft and backspin on the ball. If he could catch, he would be a much more attractive prospect, but as a first baseman scouts aren't quite sold on his bat, so Bird will likely have to go prove himself at Arkansas.
