    The lefthanded-hitting Ockimey was picking up steam late in the draft process, showing well in predraft workouts. His name was linked to the Red Sox, who were impressed by his workouts. He is a bat-first player who will go as far as his bat takes him. Although he has an unconventional swing with little preswing movement, he made solid contact on the showcase circuit. The 6-foot-2, 214-pound Ockimey has a strong build and shows at least plus raw power in batting practice, with some scouts giving his raw power plus-plus grades. The Arkansas commit is a well below-average runner with a fringe-average arm who is likely limited to first base.
