    Humphreys is a legitimate prospect on the mound, with a fastball that sits at 92-95, but he's likely to be drafted as a hitter. Humphreys had Tommy John surgery during his junior year of high school, and was relegated to second base for his senior year. He played sparingly as a freshman at Mississippi State, then earned regular playing time as a sophomore. Humphreys is still adjusting to the speed of the more competitive game, and he has shown more ability to use his tools this spring. He is a righthanded hitter with plus bat speed and strength, and shows plus raw power in batting practice. He hasn't hit as many home runs as his raw power would indicate but has seen a large increase in doubles this season. Humphreys' defensive future is uncertain; he projects well in a corner outfield spot, perhaps in right field, where his arm strength could play.
