Scouts cooled on Atkins, a 10th-round pick out of high school, this spring amid concerns that he's a one-dimensional player. He can hit (.356-18-60), but no one is sure whether he'll do so for power--which is essential because his lack of speed limits him to an infield corner. He has alternated between first base and third his whole career at UCLA, to mixed reviews.
