Stehly was a productive hitter for Orange Coast (Calif.) JC for two seasons before transferring to Texas for the Covid-shortened 2020 season. He spent two abbreviated seasons serving as a utility infielder before a breakout 2022 campaign where he erupted offensively. Stehly’s season wasn’t quite as impressive as teammate Ivan Melendez (whose was?) but he still slashed .367/.424/.662 with 19 home runs, 23 doubles and eight stolen bases. Stehly had a pull-heavy approach that served him well and he made plenty of contact overall, while obliterating the 93+ mph velocity he saw. The 5-foot-10, 205-pound hitter has a notable hand drop during his load, with a low-placed handset at launch position that could lead to timing or contact issues at the next level, but his 13.7% strikeout rate this spring was more than respectable given his power production. Stehly mostly played right field this spring but has played all four infield positions with Texas. The same draft models that will love his 2022 production will be critical of his age on draft day, as the second-team All-American turns 24 in September.
