    View Draft Report
    January graduated from his Massachusetts high school early to begin his collegiate career, but he opted to attend San Jacinto (Texas) CC instead of Louisiana State, where he had originally signed. January showed the lefthanded power that was expected and plenty of bat speed. January has a chance to be an average hitter with above-average power. Where he'll end up playing is more of a question. January has worked at catcher and right field but he ended up predominantly at DH for San Jac. He has the tools to catch with above-average arm strength, but he needs refinement and a team may opt to move him to the outfield full-time to let him focus on his power potential.
