Drafted in the 2nd round (46th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2006 (signed for $750,000)
Christensen was a preseason third-team All-American and received plenty of exposure on one of South Florida's top prep teams. When scouts heard the family threw out a $1 million signing bonus target, however, some teams decided they were willing to let him head off to Miami. But the bonus target may have been overstated, and Christensen could be taken as high as the second round by the club that buys into his ability to hit. He doesn't make consistent contact, and needs to improve his pitch recognition. He generates good bat speed, and when he squares balls he can drive them out to all parts of the park. Christensen's arm strength is as impressive as his raw power, which helps him profile as an everyday right fielder. His waist is high and he's athletic, though some scouts worry about his ability to maintain his body as he matures. He's presently an average runner.
