    Pace Jr. has huge tools and a great frame at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds that should add plenty of strength in the future. He’s a premium runner and turned in the best 60-yard dash time at East Coast Pro, clocking a 6.23-second run time—an 80-grade result. He has plus arm strength as well and should be able to provide above-average defense in the outfield at any position, with more than enough speed to stick in center. Offensively, there are more questions. Some scouts have called his swing low maintenance and noted some progression over the summer showcase circuit as he adjusted to the premium velocity and stuff he saw regularly. Most scouts still wonder about how much he will hit at the next level. His performance over the circuit wasn’t great, he showed rigid movements at times and has plenty of swing and miss. Because of those bat questions and a perceived hard commitment to Michigan, Pace might get to campus and try and prove his hitting ability in the Big Ten. Still, his upside, tools and youth (he turns 18 just after the draft) make him an intriguing upside pick.
