Two years after producing No. 10 overall pick Michael Choice, Texas-Arlington has another power-hitting outfielder. Beck can't match Choice's sheer pop, but he offers plenty from the left side of the plate and is a better pure hitter. With two weeks left in the regular season, Beck paced the Southland Conference in both homers (nine) and RBIs (50). The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder proved his ability to hit for power and average with wood bats last summer in the Cape Cod League before leaving with a hip injury that required surgery. An average runner with a plus arm, Beck fits comfortably in right field. He was clocked at 94 mph throwing from outfield during the Mavericks' scout day last fall. He stands a good chance of becoming one of the highest-drafted players in Texas-Arlington history, likely coming in behind Choice and Hunter Pence (64th overall, 2004).
