    A physical, 6-foot-4, 235-pound first baseman, Brickhouse brings plenty of power to the table and has hit double-digit home runs for the Pirates in each of his first three seasons. Power is Brickhouse’s calling card, with some scouts putting 70-grade raw power on the lefthanded slugger, and this spring has been his most accomplished season with the bat. He hit .333/.473/.648 through his first 46 games with an 18 percent walk rate—easily the best of his career. While he’s hit well this spring, many scouts are concerned about the overall quality of his hit tool. His track record in the Cape Cod League is underwhelming—a .255/.328/.373 slash line over two summers with a 23 percent strikeout rate and 8.6 percent walk rate—and his freshman and sophomore seasons were less impressive from a production standpoint and plate discipline perspective. It’s a power-over-hit profile and Brickhouse will be limited to first base the next level, although he should be an average defender. Where a team values him in the draft will depend almost entirely on his future hit grade. If a team believes he’s close to an average hitter, then he could come off the board early on Day 2.
