Even though he was the star player on the nation's No. 1 high school team in the preseason, Stewart has actually improved his stock. He was a borderline first-round pick coming in and now ranks as a possible top 10 pick overall. He has exceptional bat speed and more power even than Delmon Young, according to some scouts. Though his swing is flat and lacks tilt, he projects to hit 35-40 homers a year in the big leagues. His power is to all fields. On the season, Stewart was hitting .473-13-55. A Southern California recruit, Stewart's bat compares favorably to two past lefthanded-hitting third-base Trojan recruits: Eric Chavez and Sean Burroughs, both former first-rounders. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Stewart would be a certain top 10 pick if scouts were sure he could play third base down the road. He will likely get every chance to play his way off the position but may end up at first base or left field.
