Boesch is often linked with teammate Chris Errecart, and the two roomed together (with ace righty Brandon Morrow) this year at California. While Errecart had the stronger summer last year in the Cape Cod League, Boesch has emerged as the better draft prospect. Boesch was a highly touted high school hitter who was expected to excel in college. He has what scouts look for in a prospect, but while he had set a new career high with 10 home runs, his slugging percentage was actually lower than it was in 2005, and scouts had been disappointed by his overall performance. He's been erratic, at times showing above-average bat speed and the ability to catch up to good fastballs, and at others showing a long swing that short-circuits his power. His hands are dead at the start of his swing, often keeping him from loading up and generating power. Boesch has significant athletic ability for a big man, allowing him to move well for his size, and could play either outfield corner thanks to a slightly above-average arm and average speed.
