    Honeyman in 2022 hit .329/.402/.506 while primarily playing left field for Boston College and performed well that summer in the Cape Cod League. Moved to right field in 2023, Honeyman hit .304/.383/.534 in 183 plate appearances, though a shoulder injury sidelined him in May. Honeyman is a high-contact hitter with an aggressive approach. He sets up with an open stance, starts his swing with a leg kick that squares him off while simultaneously crouching down before firing his hands. He’s geared to handle pitches from the belt down, though he had trouble with pitches at the top of the zone. There’s little swing-and-miss, especially against fastballs, though he walked just 7% of the time and will expand the zone, especially against breaking balls. Honeyman makes hard contact—his exit velocity averaged 89 mph and was up to 109—but he never hit more than six home runs in a season, with nearly all of his extra-base damage coming pull side. Honeyman played center field in the Cape, but this spring he has primarily played right field. He’s a good athlete and a tick above-average runner with an average arm, so he doesn’t have typical center field speed, and he will need to improve his route efficiency. There’s some tweener outfield risk, but a team that either believes in Honeyman as a center fielder or thinks he can unlock more game power could take him in the top three rounds.
