    View Draft Report
    After starting his career at New Mexico, transferring to Paris (Texas) JC and getting drafted in the 33rd round in 2019 (by the D-Backs), Sikes came to Texas Christian in 2020 and was the Horned Frogs’ best hitter in 2021. The center fielder hit .329/.427/.620 with 11 home runs and 13 steals in 14 attempts. SIkes has a solid, well-rounded tool set. He’s a plus runner who has demonstrated that he can catch up to a good fastball, although he can be enticed to chase a tantalizing slider. Sikes has a short, direct swing that is geared more for hitting for average than power, but he has enough strength to drive balls to the right field power alley as well. Sikes is a well-rounded outfielder who can play center field in a pinch and is average in the corners. His arm is fringe-average but accurate.
