Duncan is the best New Jersey high school hitter to come along in years, and hit .533 with nine homers this spring. He has a mature approach to hitting and a quick, polished stroke with above-average power potential. He makes adjustments well for his age, though he's vulnerable to breaking balls. He's done an excellent job of improving his body over the last year. He added 15-20 pounds, all in the form of upper-body strength. He reminds scouts of Chipper Jones at the same stage of his development. He has passable third-base actions and an average arm, though he's destined to end up at first base or left field down the road. Duncan grew up in California before moving to New Jersey as an eighth-grader. He committed to Louisiana State, but that should be for leverage only as there's a good chance he'll go in the first round. The Yankees, among others, are attracted to his lefthanded power.
