Waldrip hit well in the Cape Cod League last summer, batting .276 with six home runs for Orleans. The 6-foot-6, 245-pounder compares well with fellow senior college sluggers such as Ole Miss' Matt Snyder or Florida's Preston Tucker, who like Waldrip, are already 22. Some scouts believe Waldrip has better feel for hit than them and like his swing, and he hit for more power this spring with 18 homers. However, he's done it against lesser competition, and he's not particularly agile around the bag at first.
