    The son of MLB utility infielder Kevin Polcovich, the younger Polcovich hit .305/.426/.473 with Orleans in the Cape Cod League last summer, and was just as impressive this spring in his first season with Oklahoma State. He was hitting .344/.494/.578 when the season ended. A switch-hitter with a solid swing from both sides of the plate, he shows average raw power in batting practice, although he’s more of a line-drive hitter in games. He’s an aggressive hitter with a short stroke and excellent barrel control and projects as a plus hitter with solid on-base skills. The flashes of pop give hopes that he can be a 10-12 home run hitter. A 5-foot-8, 160-pounder, Polcovich has no clear defensive home—he’s played second and third at Oklahoma State and played center field and left field additionally in the Cape. His fringe-average arm limits him in the infield, and while he’s a 55 runner now, there are concerns he’ll slow down as he matures. He shows some feel for tracking balls in center and is just as aggressive out there as he is at the plate. Polcovich may end up being fringe-average defensively at two infield spots and multiple outfield spots, but his hitting might make up for any defensive shortcomings. He’s likely to outlast some toolsier players in pro ball because of his feel and that switch-hitting ability.
