    View Draft Report
    A three-year starter at Marshall, Bird is a plus runner and defender with a solid-average arm who could likely defend in the big leagues right now. Though Bird has been a .300 hitter throughout his college career, it's an empty batting average. He slugged .335 this spring and is more of a slap hitter, who is inconsistent with his setup and approach at the plate. Bird stole 34 bases in 38 attempts and could have a future as a speedy defensive-first fourth outfielder who can play all three spots.
