Drafted in the 5th round (146th overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2018 (signed for $5,000).
View Draft ReportA transfer from Miami-Dade JC to Maine prior to his junior season, Bec has a solid approach at the plate and decent bat speed. He slashed .315/.379/.539 as a senior in 2018, when he led Maine in hitting, finished second on the team in slugging percentage and third in on-base percentage. His batting average dropped 25 points from his junior to senior season, however, but it was mostly a result of selling out for more power. After hitting just one home run in 54 games in 2017, Bec hit eight home runs in 45 games in 2018. At 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, Bec could potentially tap into average power, at best. He is a good athlete for his size, stealing 16 bases in 21 attempts in 2018. He’s relatively new to catching and still raw behind the plate, but he has above-average arm strength and threw out 27 potential base-stealers over the last two seasons.
