    Wood is a physical monster at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and his strength shows up in his power. He has always shown well above-average raw power in batting practice, though it's still not clear how that will translate to game power. He is prone to swing and miss and his barrel doesn't stay in the zone very long, which will also prevent him from hitting for average. Some scouts question his makeup, as he can come across as lackadaisical, but others think he's simply a teenager who will grow out of it. He isn't a great defender in the outfield, though he is a solid athlete and could stick on a corner with some work. Otherwise, he's destined for first base. He is considered signable and could get popped anywhere from the fourth to eighth round. His whole game is raw, but the power potential can't be ignored.
