Sweeney had a chance to go in the first three rounds with a good spring. An athletic 6-foot, 170-pounder, he just didn't hit enough for most scouts to consider him in that range. He's a plus runner with solid defensive tools, including a plus arm, but lacks consistency with his footwork, leading to careless errors. He should be able to play shortstop at least in a utility profile. He's a switch-hitter who hasn't developed enough strength to drive the ball with any regularity.
