The left-hand hitting Sewald has been a sparkplug at the top of the order and a solid defender in center field for Arizona State. He's a good contact hitter, who has improved his plate discipline and walked more than he struck out this year. He has minimal power, but he helps make up for that with well above-average speed. He's still learning how to use that speed on the base paths, but he makes good use of it in center field, where he covers ground easily. He has plus range and an average arm.
