    Evaluators have only gotten a partial look at Willis' tools this spring as he's been limited by a shoulder injury. But that hasn't kept them from watching the Louisiana State signee show plus power with a swing that gives him a chance to be a well-rounded hitter. It's a power-over-hit profile, but his hit tool could be fringe-average. Willis' eventual defensive home is more up in the air. He's a below-average runner whose best fit should be catcher. When healthy, he's shown a plus arm. His receiving is less impressive than his arm, but he's a solid athlete (he was also his high school's quarterback) who has shown a willingness to work at it. Third base is also an option thanks to his arm and he has the power to even handle a move to a corner outfield spot.
