Drafted in the 10th round (322nd overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2010 (signed for $95,000)
Even during his highly decorated high school career at Chatsworth High, Coyle spent time in the shadow of teammates Matt Dominguez and Mike Moustakas, both first-round picks in 2007. Due to signability concerns, he slipped to the 19th round (Indians) that year and attended Arizona. Coyle transferred to Fresno State last fall and had a solid year for the Bulldogs after getting a waiver from the NCAA that allowed him to play without sitting out a year. At 6-foot-1, 215 pounds, Coyle has an attractive left/left profile. His stats (.344/.366/.545, 10 homers) do not reflect it, but he has average power. He has good pitch recognition skills, which means he has a chance to be a high on-base percentage hitter, but needs to exercise more patience and plate discipline, which is also reflected in his stats (nine walks). He is not a burner, but an above-average runner and projects as an average left fielder.
