Aplin sets himself apart because he's one of the best defensive center fielders on the West Coast. Even though he has just fringe-average foot speed, Aplin gets great jumps and always takes proper routes to balls. He has a strong, accurate arm. Aplin has a 6-foot, 200-pound frame and some strength in his lefthanded swing, but he's a below-average hitter with gap power. He has good bat control, as he's struck out just 38 times over 446 college at-bats. Unless Aplin makes strides with his bat, his profile is that of a fourth outfielder.
