Riddle is a rare bird as a college second baseman who could move to shortstop in pro ball. He defers to Matt Reida at Kentucky, but Riddle's solid range, reliable hands and plus arm will work at short. At the plate, the 6-foot-3, 185-pounder excels at making contact. He has a compact lefthanded stroke and a line-drive approach, though he could do a better job of tapping into his gap power potential. Some scouts question how Riddle will fare against tougher competition given that he had a .622 OPS in the Cape Cod League last summer and a .589 OPS in Southeastern Conference play this spring. He has solid speed but isn't a major basestealing threat. The Red Sox selected him in the 35th round in 2010 out of a Kentucky high school.
