    Worthington was known primarily for his prowess on the football field prior to this spring. He was an all-state running back as a senior, amassing more than 2,500 yards rushing, and committed to play football at ECU. He shortened his swing and showed plus bat speed and raw power this spring. He uses his hands well through his swing and balls jump off his bat when he squares them up. He's also a 65 runner on the 20-80 scale, making for all the tools of an offensive-minded center fielder. Worthington doesn't command the strike zone, however, and his free-swinging approach needs refining. A patient team that believes in his projection could take Worthington in the fifth or sixth round, but he might be a tough sign for slot money in that range.
