    Seymour was the 2019 ACC Player of the Year after hitting .377/.439/.576 with nine home runs and 20 doubles. Scouts have always liked his bat-to-ball skills, above-average raw power and standout exit velocities but wanted to see him hit for more power in games at a hitter-friendly park. He did just that this spring, tallying a career-best 21 homers that put him among the nation’s leaders in the category, while hitting .302/.400/.709. Seymour has good on-base abilities as well, with tolerable strikeout rates given his power and a 13% walk rate this spring. He’ll be limited to first base as a well below-average runner, so there’s pressure on his bat to perform at the next level, but his wood bat history has always been worse than his production at Wake.
