Green certainly stands out on a baseball field. He has a pro-ready body at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds and has been bigger and stronger than his peers since he was 12-years-old. With his long arms, Green can get leverage in his swing and flashes above-average power potential. But he also has a tendency to get tied up and struggled at times catching up to average velocity on the showcase circuit last summer. There are a lot of moving parts to Green's swing and he's a streaky player--sometimes he'll look like a future star and other times he'll look lost at the plate. He plays shortstop now, but definitely projects to move to third base either at Oregon State or in pro ball, so how much he'll hit is a big deal since he'll be playing a corner position. Green is a fringe-average runner with above-average arm strength. Green is a gamer with a strong work ethic and shows good leadership on the field.
